1. Water Bottle
Remember, you are trekking and your body will dehydrate. Always make sure you carry 2 water bottles of one litre each maybe along with a thermostat and refill them whenever you get a chance.
2. Head Torch.
A head torch is a lifesaver for you in many ways. First thing, it gets dark very soon on hill stations and you definitely need a torch and second, you don’t even need to carry a head torch in your hand!
Always carry light snacks in your pockets and backpacks. A light snack is something you don’t need to cook to eat. A chocolate bar, dry fruits, oats or even peanuts would do.
4. Medical Kit.
You are going on a snow trip and sometimes, unfortunately, you may get hurt. So, a small medkit with all the necessary first-aid medicines would be useful for everyone in your snow trek group.
Toiletries are very much essential for your snow trek. Maintain a waterproof Ziplock bag with all the necessary toiletries like moisturizer, toilet paper, hand sanitizer, face wash, etc.
6. A Multi-Purpose Knife.
A multi-purpose knife like a Swiss Army Knife would come very handy to you in snow treks like these. It is compact and easy to carry than a common knife or axe.
7. Map or Trek route.
Apart from all these snow trekking equipments, you should always keep an extra copy of the map of your snow trek. It is always better to have a hard copy of your map rather than on your mobile or other electronic devices.
