Kashmir, without any doubt, is a place that’s on every Indian’s bucket list. Known as ‘Heaven on earth‘, this beautiful mountain range is one of those places that will leave you breathless, literally. Snow capped mountains, lush greenery, serene lakes, rich culture, amazing people, and delicious food make this place. The beauty of this place is unparalleled and once you visit it, you’ll want to go back again. Such is the attraction of Kashmir. We bet you can’t find one customised package trip to Kashmir or a group package trip, we can assure you that you will love it.
No one wants to lug around a bag that weighs as much as your own body weight. It is essential to pack light when you are travelling to a far away place regardless of your mode of transport. But how do you pack light for a cold place? Well the answer is quite simple- layering. Even though Kashmir is cold most of the year, the sun does shine pretty bright in the day time.
It’s important to keep in mind what kind of place you are going to. We suggest you avoid taking clothes that take too long to dry, don’t allow free movement, or anything that’s too expensive to lose. Stick to clothes that are comfortable and you can layer on like tee shirts, stretchable jeans/cotton pants, cardigans, sweaters, and a warm jacket. Don’t forget to take a pair of trainers, boots, socks, warm caps, mittens, and a lot of unmentionables. If it gets too hot, you can just switch to a pair of pants and a tee shirt.
Essential Hygiene products
Avoid carrying hygiene products such as soap, sunscreen, shampoo, deodorant, and anything that you might get in Kashmir. If you do insist on carrying it, make sure it’s all packed in travel bottles and containers to avoid spillage. Don’t forget to carry along some sanitary napkins, you never know when emergency might strike you or others around. Also ensure that you carry an extra set of paper bags to keep your worn clothes in.

- Required general medications.
