Due to India’s vast geographic scale and diverse topography, it is home to an extraordinary variety of climatic regions. This means if you’re planning a tour of India, then the strategic packing of essentials is a must. Here’s what you should take with you.
Depending on which region you are planning to cover, or even if it’s all of India, comfy clothing is part of the deal. Pack light clothes, an extra pair of socks, pantyhose, comfy bras, and your go-to cold weather jacket.
Whether you’re planning to conquer the steep hills of the Himalayas or lounge on the golden beaches of the Southern India, a comfortable and sturdy pair of footwear is an essential you can’t afford to be without. Crocs or a pair of slip-on shoes also work as a good substitute.
Pack a tube of mosquito or insect repellent if you don’t want to catch any nasty diseases on your Indian adventure.
If you’re wondering why an oversized scarf is an essential then you must know that India is a spiritual and religious land full of temples and shrines. As per the rule, visitors’ head must be covered at all times inside the premises in order to pay their respects.
If you love your skin, then pack your sunscreen.
