We suggest you to carry the above mentioned equipment/gears for a moderate level trek. You need to refer to this list while sorting your gears/ equipment. You may rent some of the equipment instead of purchasing. Having mentioned that, it is good to have your own equipment rather than renting. Any purchase of equipment is only an investment for your future treks.

Feel free to make any changes in this list as per your own convenience/ preference. Please do run through the list of things you’ll be carrying with us, in case you make any changes to this one. We’re just a phone call away.

Happy trekking...!!
