  9. A note book and/or writing paper and pen

  10. Duffel bag or large rucksack to carry to gear while trekking. We recommend you use something strong and sturdy.

  11. Daypack: This is a small rucksack to carry the gear you will need while trekking. Camera, spare jacket, waterproof jacket, water bottle, pack lunch etc.

  12. Water bottle

  13. Small towel

  14. Toiletries, N.B as little as possible, if you are traveling with friends try to share toiletries

  15. Small torch with spare batteries. (Important). There will be no electricity after 9 pm. You will need it

  16. Walking boots / trekking shoes.  If you are buying new boots for this trip please ensure they are well broken in before hand. Few things will make you more miserable during the trek than blisters. You need to cross some shallow rivers using them (Some time jumping over round stones in shallow rivers). It is better to have shoes which does not get wet easily. (Avoid shoes made of foam and cloth kind of stuff). Our recommendation is take some woodland shoes with a backup of good quality floaters.  Old shoes must be avoided if they are not in good condition as last year two of our clients got their shoes sole removed while trekking right inside the Valley of flowers. That is something no one would like to happen with himself. You also need to take them off while crossing some shallow rivers. (Kindly talk to me if you want at +91 9991142759)

  17. Medicines like muscle relaxant, some antibiotics, one crape bandage, if you are prone to vomiting then some medicine for that

  18. Some dry fruits like Fig, Cashew nut and Almonds. Also some chocolates can be bought, idea is to have high energy low weight food items while trekking.  Food quality available in Ghangria is not so good. So take some fruits / biscuits  for your breakfast and lunch for at least two days.
