Backpacking is fun only when you have the right gear. Know the essentials to pack while backpacking and trekking in Himalayas.

Backpacking is the thing every traveller love about. Living in New Delhi, makes the Himalayas reachable to me. What else could be a better place to travel in summer more than the Giant Himalayas.
