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.

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.

  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.
