Triund has been my life’s first trekking experience and was the most rejuvenating moments. Trekking is by far the most peaceful experience one can give to oneself.
To make trekking a lovely and more wonderful experience I have created a must have list in your backpack. Packing the luggage is equally a task as finding the suitable place for vacation.
Sunscreen lotion and lip balms
Sunscreen lotion is must to avoid the sun burn and rashes. The sun shines directly above you and sun screen makes it little easier. Aloha winters makes our lips dry, a lip balm is very handy.
Medicine kit with bandaid and sprays
A medical kit is very important for any journey. It becomes even more important when we are planning for trekking. Any form of injury up above the mountains can be taken care by the same. Pain sprays always comes in great use when you are climbing down. Legs tend to strain and these comes in of great use.
Warm clothes and rain coats
It’s always chill up there above the mountains. my first trekking experience made me realise that the most important thing to carry up is warm clothes. Even in October the temperature was down to 1°C. Jackets and body warmer along with socks are of great help up there. Also rain coats can be handy when it pours up there. Snowfalls are frequent in winters and rain sheets helps us to enjoy the lovely snow fall.
Torch and Battery Bank
Trekking calls for a lot of night stays in tents and torch lights are very handy. In my Triund experience torch lights literally helped me survive the night enjoying the games we played inside the tent. Also there are no charging points so battery bank comes in handy for an overnight stay.
Food gets expensive up in the mountains so handy cash always comes in great use. For me it was easier not to carry food items and buy up there. I was left with less of weight to carry. There were plenty of food options available from tea to Maggi, from cold drinks to biscuits.
My next trekking experience will be much better with these sleeved up tips.
Eager and excited for a new journey ahead
