    As you know that you will have to carry your luggage throughout the trek, make sure you don’t overburden yourself with that heavy luggage. Only take the clothes that are essential and can protect you from the chilly winters. Be sure to carry your winter essentials as this is a winter trek and the temperature at Kuari may go negative. We have listed below the most crucial clothing essentials you need to pack to make your job easy. And please don’t carry any shorts, denim or fancy clothes as they are unsuitable for trekking.

    Electronics

    Gadgets are our life. We basically cannot live without them. What if you forget your charger, adapter, or power bank? Don’t think, please! Nobody will provide you with theirs because their chargers will be occupied for their needs. So, don’t forget to pack these few electronic essentials in your bag.

    • Power bank and chargers – Don’t forget these essentials, as your gadget’s battery will run down, capturing those picture-perfect moments and video calls to your loved ones.
    • Camera, batteries, and an additional memory card – You cannot miss capturing those beautiful memories in your DSLR. Carry a camera with more storage and extra batteries.
    • Headlamp Torch – Also, you would need a headlamp torch to get the night view
