What to Carry


Heavy warm woolens are a must during winter months as temperatures go below zero degrees. Medium to light woolens are required in the summer/monsoon months since it can get quite cold if the wind blows in from the snowy peaks in the North.


Good hiking boots are recommended for your comfort during treks and walks although regular walking shoes will also suffice. Slippery soles are not advisable. An extra pair of shoes during monsoons is preferable.


Sunglasses and sun hats are advisable since the sun at 7,800 ft in a clean atmosphere can be surprisingly strong, especially in winters. Raincoats and umbrellas are required during the monsoons. Gloves and thick woolen socks are critical during winter months.


Guests are advised to carry a good sun block, heavy moisturizer, body oil and face cream to guard against the dry air and sun.


A good camera, as Naturelife Homestay and Mashobra are really a photographers' delight! Paints, brushes and notebooks since ideas and inspirations flow freely.
