Whenever we get holidays, we plan accordingly for our vacations. Some people like traveling to different cities, countries or continents, and some of them decide to do something adventurous, like trekking, sky diving and many more. If you too are an adventurous person and are planning to spend your holiday trekking or hiking, you must know a few important things before planning further.

A very basic thing you must do is to check your holiday schedule. If you are traveling in December and it aligns with one of the December global holidays, then it will be good to opt for trekking during those times, as you will be free from any professional obligations.

Water Bottles

One of the most important and basic things that everyone should carry is a water bottle that most people forget and later regret. In hiking or trekking, you have to walk long distances. Because of this, your body dehydrates and you may feel unconscious or uneasy, irrespective of the hot or cold weather conditions.

Comfortable Shoes And Boots

For walking long distances, you need to be dressed comfortably. You must wear good quality shoes or boots to make you feel comfortable. You should also carry a pair of extra shoes or boots in your backpack if any sudden need for these things arises, they will be available to you. Ensure that you have an extra pair of footwear with you.

Some people say that they do not get time to do such shoppings. Therefore, you need to find holidays when you can conveniently shop for these items. If you are planning to travel in December, here is the link to the list of all the holidays in December –


When you are trekking, it is obvious to lose energy faster than usual. This is because of continuous walking for long distances. But as we know to work efficiently and effectively, our body needs lots of energy. Similarly, while trekking, an optimum level of energy is needed by your body.

Therefore, you should carry some of the dry food items, so that whenever you feel low or less energetic, you can sit and munch them for some time. These food items do not take much space and can be easily carried in your backpack wherever you go. Food items like dry fruits, energy bars, chocolates, fresh fruits, nuts, etc will prove to be very helpful while trekking.

But remember to not carry any liquid items in your backpack, as they can spill and spoil the other items present inside the bag. And this will damage your backpack setup, and you will have to dry it under the sun to be able to use your bag again.

Torch And Flashlight

Torch is significant for emergencies. Suppose it gets dark while returning from the day’s trekking, what would you do? A torch or even a mobile flashlight will help you in reaching your camps safely.

These were the most important things which you should carry while trekking. Now that you have understood the significance of these items during the trek, we hope that you will not forget these things and enjoy your trekking journey. For more interesting read visit-
