" What to pack really depends on where you are going, for how many days and the weather you are likely to encounter. If you are trekking in the Himalayas in high altitudes. It?s obviously going to be colder than a low-altitude trek in the same season. Are you likely to get snow or rain?
Some areas like the North-East are going to be more humid even in late autumn than in the Central Himalayas or Ladakh. If you are trekking in the Sahyadris in the monsoon t enjoy the lushness of the environs, or in the Valley of Flowers to check out the alpine flowers, well Cheap Vans Old Skool Pro Black White , ensure that your trek doesn?t get washed out by packing rain gear and keeping your backpack dry, wrapped securely in a sheet of plastic. Finally, what to pack depends on whether you are traveling sahib or alpine-style. The former would mean you would have to worry about your personal kit only. The latter would mean your personal kit plus camping gear and food.
If there are four of you, then I would recommend carrying two small tents as it would be far more comfortable than cramming into one big one. One stove, adequate kerosene or stove fuel vans slip on ireland , one pressure cooker to cook quickly and efficiently, one pan for tea, soup and heating pre-cooked vegetables.
If your group comprises more than four people, carry another set of pots, pans vans toy story ireland , stove and fuel rather than trying to cook for six to eight people on one stove.
Boots: your footwear is the most important gear in your kit. Remember you will be spending five to seven hours a day tramping about in them, so make sure they?re comfortable. I suggest you don?t pack the brand new pair of New Balance hiking boots. Break in all new shoesboots before trying them on the trail, or you will rue the day you set foot in them. I personally find most hiking boots too warm for our conditions and where the trail is easy, have preferred to walk in my sneakers.
On difficult terrain, though vans sk8 hi ireland , it is better to have a sturdy pair of boots, of you are planning to buy a new pair of boots, look for the following: The soles should not be too flexible. If they are, your feet muscles will tire easily. They should only flex a little bit if you push the sole up from the front of the boot. The heel and ankle should be firm. If the ankle part flip-flops when you push it from side to side, it?s no good. You need good ankle support to avoid twisted ankles on the trail. The toe area should feel solid. You are likely to scuff against stones and boulders vans old skool womens ireland , particularly on your way down a hill. If there isn?t proper protection, you could bruise your toes badly and even lose a toe-nail. Finally, when you slip your feet in, the boots should fit well, not pinch vans old skool white ireland , and you should have adequate room in the front to wiggle your toes. After you purchase your boots, walk around in them for at least a week and only then should you use them on your hike.
Sandals with straps are useful for river crossings. Slip them into your daypack if you know you have a river to cross. This will help keep the boots dry as well as protect your feet from cuts from sharp stones on the riverbed.
Socks: This is the second most important item in your personal gear. Calculate one clean pair of socks for each day of trekking. Socks, which get stiff with sweat, will definitely cause blisters. Socks made of wool or wool mix are a better bet than pure cotton socks, especially in cold weather. Some people refer to wear two pairs of socks vans old skool black ireland , one thin inner and a thicker outer to avoid blisters. But I personally find this uncomfortable. Try i.
