Bad packing can ruin your whole trip, make your travel packing easy with the help of this awesome post and tips.
First of all, make a kit for those things you will need after wake up in the morning. Fill your toiletries kit with a toothpaste tube, toothbrush, shampoo, and conditioner pouches or small bottles, comb, body lotion, sunscreen, hand sanitizer, bath soap, and moisturizer.
Make a section for necessary garments, put your undergarments/underwear first then pack full and half sleeve shirts/T-shirts, capris, lowers or shorts to make your travel easy and comfortable. Pack some pairs of socks and pack one bath and one hand towel in this compartment. Because Uttarakhand is surrounded by hills and purely famous for its nature, beauty, and climate so it will be cold at the most of the hill stations in Uttarakhand, pack some warm wear too like body warmers, sweatshirts, jacket, hoodie, and other necessary warm clothes.
One pair of slippers and one pair of sports/trekking shoes will be enough to travel easily.
First Aid Kit
Make a kit for first aid essential products like antiseptic liquid, bandage, medical dressing and some useful tablets for blood pressure control, headache, fever and pain reliever. Add a mosquito repeller lotion to this kit.
Have something to eat
If you are traveling with kids it’s very important to have something to eat because kids ask for food every hour, to avoid this situation buy some packets of biscuits, chocolates, chips, namkeens, and dry fruits. Have a water bottle and keep it filled.
Be prepared for the dark
Suppose you are visiting a remote area or a national park where electricity is not available all the time then you must have an electric torchlight and candles. Do not roam without shoes in the dark outside of your hotel/resort/lodge if it is located near a dense forest because there can be chances to meet with very dangerous snakes and scorpions.
