Trekking means to walk in some mountain whether it is for many days or few. It may led you to the base camp of the Himalayas or just some small hills form where you will have spectacular view of the nature and mountain. To walk in the mountain or to enjoy with them you have to be prepared with essential equipment. That is we use to call trekking gears. We can’t say which trekking gears are essential to where or in which season. For those details you can consult to your trekking operator or think in general. It will be always a gentle way to trek with the basic trekking gears because you never know what can be most important items to you in trek. Except the basic food and a room or tent to sleep the following things could be useful to trek in proper way.

If you have proper trekking equipment you can trek with lots of fun and enjoy. But if you don’t have that like your shoe which is smaller to your feet or bigger that may cause blisters and will have a painful trek.

Please check your personal gears twice or thrice before you start your trekking so that it will be comfortable to you.
