Summers call for a trip to uphills that offer lush treks that you can enjoy whether your children are accompanying you or you are accompanying your friends. If trekking is on your travel wish list then here’s a list of trekking essentials that you must carry with yourself to make the most out of your exploit:

1. Sleeping Bag

If you are planning a trekking or hiking trip in cold areas where you plan to camp under the night sky, then invest in a quality sleeping bag that can easily fit into your rucksack besides keeping you warm in the cold hours. For a family, you can buy a camping tent and unleash an exquisite experience.

2. Hiking Boots

Hiking boots help you hike with confidence by lending a strong grip on the ground and support to your feet. Look for the ones that are wet-weather proof.

3. Anti-Shock Trekking Stick

If your trek is going to be long, or you are a beginner, then carry an anti-shock trekking stick to support you through protracted terrains. A variety of pole sticks are available online, choose the one that has a torch too.

4. Bandana/Hat

A Buff Bandana or a Hat is what you need for stylish Insta pics. Apart from style, it gives you a full head wrap protecting from wind or sunshine, depending on your destination.

5. Down Jacket

A jilet with a hood is a must-have for cold treks. Go for the one that is easy to carry, waterproof and warm enough.

6. Rucksack

And to carry all things around with ease, you need a sturdy yet lightweight rucksack. Depending on the duration of your trek choose the size that’s perfect to stuff all your essentials.
