7 Things to Carry During Your Family Trip to Himachal Pradesh

Surrounded by the majestic Himalayas, this picturesque state is an adventurer’s dream come true. It is nature’s ultimate playground for some, and for others, it is the embodiment of tranquility. Its climate, scenery, food, and culture together make it an ideal destination for family vacations.
From soul searchers to families with kids, travelers from all around the world are attracted by the growing popularity of Himachal. When you are planning a trip here, there are certain things you should remember to keep while packing your bags. Read on to know the top seven things you must bring along on your trip
1. Sunscreen and moisturizing lotion
Himachal Pradesh is cold and as you know cold air can make your skin feel extremely dry, remember to carry moisturizing lotion with you. Kids are generally more prone to dry skin due to cold weather; therefore, it is essential to carry your personal favorite moisturizer. Same goes for sunscreen lotion. Snow reflects sunlight and even intensifies it, so it’s helpful to wear sunscreen when you head outdoors.
2. Warm clothes
Himachal Pradesh is colder than states in the south and west of India throughout the year. Due to the low temperatures in this region, it is important for you to pack heavy sweaters, thermal innerwear, and woolen socks on your trip to Himachal.
3. ID proofs
When traveling to Himachal, it is always a good idea to have your government-issued ID proofs handy. You may be asked to produce them at any point, but to ensure a stress-free holiday, remember to carry your PAN card, Aadhar card, driver’s license, or any other ID card.
4. Appropriate shoes
Considering your itinerary and the weather conditions of Himachal when you are traveling there, do pack appropriate shoes. You may have to walk a lot for sightseeing or trekking on hilly terrain, therefore, choose the most suitable walking shoes to bring along.
Since most tourist spots of Himachal Pradesh may be located away from the main cities, it is advisable that you carry all your personal medication with you. Also, pack medications for mountain-sickness, along with anti-diarrhea drugs and paracetamol to ensure that your holiday is perfect.
6. Camera and batteries
In order to be able to capture all the breathtaking sights you come across in Himachal, remember to bring your camera and enough batteries to keep it powered on your trip.
7. Power bank
Having your phone turned off while traveling to a new place can be worrisome. Remember to pack a fully-charged power bank along with your phone’s charger so that your phone is on throughout the day when you are on the go.
