• For clothing, we recommend: 
    -Conservative, light weight, breathable clothing that covers shoulders, knees, and cleavage.
    -Lots of layers, with warm clothing for evenings (Believe it or not, it can reach lows of -5℃ in the night and then reach highs of over 40℃ mid day, depending on your tour dates/locations.)
    -Shoes (appropriate for hiking) and sandals
    -A bathing suit
    -The rest of the basics!
     
  • Cash related: 
    -Credit card
    -Debit card
    -About $100 worth of local currency
    -We also recommend you get an unactivated back-up debit card that can be activated with a simple phone call to your bank. Keep this card separate from the rest, so you are never far from cash if your original bank card is damaged, lost, or stolen. 
     
  • Odds and Ends we suggest: 
    -A space saving micro-fibre travel towel
    -A silk travel sleeping bag liner
    -A flashlight or headlamp
    -A first aid kit including cold medicine, gravol, polysporin, traveller’s diarrhea medication, and anything recommended by your Traveller’s Health Nurse, as described under the query “Do I need to get vaccinations before I leave?”.
    -Earplugs and a sleeping eye mask
    -Bag locks and light weight lock chains (to lock up your bags on trains).
    -A battery powered alarm clock (or your phone would do the trick) and watch
    -A camera  
    -A Swiss Army pocket knife
     
  • Do NOT forget: 
    -Your passport with an Indian Tourist Visa
    -Your cards (incl. another form of I.D.) and cash
    -Sunscreen and bug spray (DEET 30-35%)

Avoid bringing anything of great value to you. No need to have material possessions cluttering your mind or causing you worry. Free yourself!
