Trek decided; tickets booked; fitness level checked – Now what !! One of the essential checks is what to carry, yes the checklist for Himalayan Treks.
I am ready and excited for my next Himalayan trek “Sandakphu-Phalut Trek” organized by Nature Walkers. A must-do trek in India, where you can see four of the five highest peaks of the world including Mt. Everest, Makalu, Kanchenjunga, and Lhotse, along with Three Sisters and many other peaks of Nepal, Sikkim, Tibet and Bhutan in one single stretch of snow.

Himalayan Treks are quite different than the Western Ghats treks one of the obvious reason is the altitude difference and thus the number of days spent on the trek. Two days trekking in the Western Ghats requires a quite smaller checklist than the mighty Himalayas.
So, let’s start with the basic gear:

So, now when the bag is decided let fill it up. Starting with Head accessories. Covering and protecting your head is very much essential as temperate and weather changes unpredictably.

Head is done, now time to pack for body accessories. Always, pack with a reminder that you need to carry the bag pack by yourself. And girls no you will not get a chance to show off your skirts, shorts or jeans. If really required carrying light-colorful cloths which will look good in pics 😊

Now for your powerful steps:

NOTE: Carry cosmetics 😜 Not kidding guys it an absolute requirement :

So ready to do some shopping!! 😉😀

Do remember to carry some excitement, enthusiasm, and positivity!

Stay tuned for some health tips for Himalayan treks. And keep exploring and feed your adventures soul.
