The Ultimate travel checklist to use before you start packing

Trek Checklist – Top things to carry for a trekking trip!

Everyone does trekking for different reasons. Some to test their limit, some for adventure, some of get fit and some to tick off an item from their bucket-list. I do treks to motivate myself. Every time I chose a trek, I spend a significant amount of time in thinking what to pack and what no. Despite having packed for trekking countless times, packing is still a back-breaking task for me.




So I have created this master list from different sources on internet. This master trek checklist pretty much covers all the things any trekker needs on a trek. However, you can consider adding or removing to this list based on number of days and the weather condition at the trek place.
