Hoping to carry a light bag, yet missing out on something important is almost every traveller’s nightmare. Aishwarya Menon presents an essential list of things women can’t afford to miss out on.

Carry only the essentials while on a trek and have a pleasant trek!

While clothes, emergency medical kits and beauty aids are few of the unforgettable parts of packing, more often than not, we are bound to miss out on the major essentials.

Here’s a handy list of must-carry(s) for your next trek:

1. Comfortable & Correct Footwear

Invest in a pair of nice and durable hiking shoes

It’s time to let go of the heels and replace them with a far more practical travelling option. Slip on a pair of hiking sandals or trekking shoes, with a good grip. Carry a pair of lined boots if your hike is in one of the colder regions and don’t forget an extra pair of comfortable socks and thermals for icy temperatures!

Pro Tip: Stuff your lightweight shoes in your backpack, and wear the heavy one in transit!

2. A Universal Power Adapter

Keep at least two sets of power adapters with chords handy while travelling

Admit it; with the boom in social media, it’s difficult to lay off your phone. When you travel you will see a lot of scenic spots that make for amazing photo opportunities. These are definitely going to get uploaded, right? While you’re in the middle of nowhere, capturing breathtaking clicks, the last thing you want is your phone to run out of juice! So, carry at least two power adapters and make sure it comes with a USB port so you can charge multiple devices at the same time.

P.S: Don’t forget the charging chords!

3. A Menstrual Cup For Convenience

Women have an endless array of options when it comes to sanitation and hygiene. From tampons to menstrual cups, it has become much easier to travel during your period. Menstrual cups are a far more planet- and body-friendly option than disposable tampons or pads. Made of non-toxic, medical-grade silicon, they are a far healthier option than tampons or pads. They’re also cheaper, and easier to carry.

Pro Tip: Keep a bunch of toilet paper rolls handy when travelling. They come in handy for everything from spills to lack of water in inaccessible areas.

4. A PeeBuddy For When You HAVE To Go! PeeBuddy is a saviour in times of stinky and dirty toilets distress

We can all settle the argument that the most beautiful trek locations have the worst and dirtiest toilets. PeeBuddy is a blessing at such times. These come in handy when the toilets are not just stink-holes, but might sometimes be non-existent. This device is available in India and is completely waterproof and disposable.

5. An All-Inclusive Sleep Kit

This kit is called an ‘easy to carry, multi-utility kit’, and for all the right reasons! It comes with a neck pillow, an eye mask and a pair of earplugs. A boon for people travelling in trains, buses or planes for long hours.

P.S: This kit is equally helpful if you have a noisy neighbour or are stuck with unreasonable insomnia!
