    If you mean a generic waterproof jacket rather than a specific "Goretex" jacket, then yes, it would be good. This does depend on the time of year of your trek as well: in winter, it is good as protection from the wind; at other times it is obviously good if it is snowing or raining. A jacket that is specifically Gore Tex lined is not necessary, however. Any decent hiking rain jacket will do. Hope this helps. about 9 years ago

    Would you be able to just use a light rain jacket? That really depends on your luck and the weather which can be finicky. During my two whole months stay in Nepal, I only needed a rain just once, and it was just a light drizzle. Of course if you are used to having a knee length heavy raincoat, it does no harm in having it, just in case, as always. Not only will it protect you from thunderstorms, but the cold mountain wind too. You will be glad you had a warm armor against the cold. It is your call. Also, do check up on the weather pattern for the time of the year you will be going. Rainfall and weather differs widely depending on the month of the year. Sometimes rainy but most times fine and cool. about 9 years ago
