Best Time To Do Bailey Trail Trek

The ideal time to do this trek is in the pre-monsoon season in May, June and the post-monsoon season in September & October. In these seasons, the weather remains comparatively warmer than in any other month. The weather on this trek is still a little unpredictable as you might get past rain in some parts and snow in others as you go to higher altitudes.

There is an important question that the trekker who is doing trek asks, like what all things to carry while trekking. Below we have provided the details on everything you should carry; an easy way to remember is by Head to foot or foot to head. We have prepared from Head to foot.

  1. Head Lamps – If there are treks which you might do at night and even when camping for the night. Headlamps help a lot.
  2. Hats or Cap – Beanie Cap will protect you from winds and sometimes freezing temperatures for the night. Hats protect you from the sun during the day and also ensure they have a strap so the hat doesn’t blow from the wind.
  3. Sunglasses – if you want to carry sunglasses, you will need specific sunglasses for trekking. The glasses should protect from UV rays, fit your face perfectly so it doesn’t fall while you climb, jump, or cross an obstacle, and be according to the weather conditions of the place; the glass should be made to fit different weather conditions.
  4. Buff / Balaclava – You must carry this to protect your mouth or neck from extreme temperatures and keep it warm.
  5. T-shirt / Long sleeve shirt – you should carry at least 4 to 5 T–shirts, so if one gets wet or dirty, you can wear another. Long sleeve shirts help to protect from sun UV rays.

  12. Footwear – Trekking shoes which are waterproof and have ankle support. Walking / Hiking sandals which can be used off the trek, i.e., in the morning and evening hours, basically to get your feet rest from heavy boots, sometimes used for crossing streams and rivers, it’s more comfortable and safer than crossing barefoot or wetting your boots. Sneakers (Optional) can be worn for normal driving days or used around the camp.
  13. Rain Wears – you can carry a raincoat, rain jacket, and pants. During long rains, the waterproof jackets start leaking, but the poncho does get work in keeping you dry, so choose accordingly. Rain covers, small waterproof to cover your backpack and a daypack for your gadgets.
  14. Backpack – Make sure your backpack should be comfortable, neither too big nor too small, and for a week’s trek, 60-70 litres of the backpack should be enough to hold all your belongings. Ensure your backpack has good hip & Shoulder support, and pockets should be accessible quickly.
  15. Daypack – All trekkers should keep in mind that a daypack is very important; this will be a great help to you while on the trek, also every single day, you won’t be carrying your backpack; therefore, for day excursions, shorter hikers, sightseeing, you can carry your stuff in it.
