Adventure Freaks, do you follow any list of Camping and Hiking/Trekking essentials!!!
I am a Traveller and always up for the adventure, as “normal” is so boring :P So have been a part of Camping, hiking/trekking etc. But would still count me as a newbie in the field. This time I thought of trying my hands on some adventure and went out for camping, hiking and trekking in the hills of Himachal Pradesh, India.

The experience was fun, will be sharing in bits and pieces on www.gobanjare.com, so stay tuned. But today in this post would like to share some essentials that I learnt about in the process.
While planning for camping or hiking/trekking, pack light and in comfortable Rucksacks to carry.
Proper footwear is really important to make you feel comfortable and enjoy the journey. Invest in good shoes and they will serve you well :)
Always carry a Water Bottle along, can be needed at any point of time. Also, various Purifiers are available, which purifies water from any source while travelling.
This is a really crucial accessory, a comfortable stay is important after all the hard work. And setting up a tent is an Art ;)
To be prepared for any situation or circumstances, a good sleep is a recipe for a better next day! And here is when under any circumstances a Sleeping bag come into the picture.
To be prepared for the unknown paths you follow. Carrying a headlamp or torch is always recommended.
An easy to carry furniture is a good idea while camping, to sit and relax anytime anywhere.
Most important to discover new pathways and not get lost ;) A Compass or GPS comes handy in this situation.
Just for support, a trekking pole is really helpful to climb up/down those trails.
Food is a necessity and not everywhere easily available. So carry your poison and a portable stove to prepare stuff wherever possible.
Here are few others to consider:
- Insect Repellent
- First aid
- Sunglasses and Sun Protection
- Comfortable clothes/woolens/jackets/windcheaters
- Daily use kit
