Monsoons are just around the corner and you are very excited to get-set-go on your first Monsoon Trek!

Like we always say, trekking is a fun-filled activity but it has its own amount of challenges too. To conquer these challenges, here is a list of some essentials that you must never forget.


It is quite different from usual raincoats. It not only protects you from rains and keeps you dry, but also cuts the wind and keeps you warm when you’re at a high altitude. So, get one Windcheater and there’s no looking back.

Trekking or Hiking Boots

Different from usual running shoes, Hiking shoes are tough and hence won’t give up on you while climbing rough terrains. They give you the much needed grip and are water-proof too, hence no worries during Monsoons!

Rucksack or Backpack

For each and every trek, you get a never ending list of “Things to carry”. Now, to carry all this stuff, you need a light-weight yet sturdy bag. Rucksacks have numerous straps to hold on to your body, which makes climbing easy. There are several pockets that let you keep your belongings separately.

Bag Cover

Rains arrive without invitations, don’t they? Well, in such a case your bags and belongings will surely get wet. Make sure you cover your bag with a rucksack cover. Also, cover important things like money, extra pair of clothes, camera and phone with polythene while packing for extra protection.

Quick Dry Outfits

It’s a given that your clothes will get wet quite easily and it takes a lot of time to dry them out, thanks to the humidity. So, make sure you wear quick dry clothes such as a nylon T-shirt and trekking pants.

Next time when you plan to trek, make sure you have all this stuff. So, that monsoon treks become a memory to be cherished for lifetime.
