  2. packing cubes for organising stuffs – 3
  3. Underwear (both upper and lower) – 5 each
  4. Shirts – 2
  5. Pant – 1
  6. Fleece – 1
  7. Fleece Sweetpant – 1
  8. Down Jacket – 1
  9. Trekking shoe (For me, it was Merrell Men’s Moab Gore-Tex Hiking Shoe) – 1
  10. Waterproof rain over pants – 1
  11. Rain jacket – 1
  12. Waterproof backpack rain cover – 1
  13. Power bank – 1
  14. Socks (woollen and normal) – 4 pairs
  15. Scarf – 1
  16. Beanie – 1
  17. Flipflop/Sandal – 1
  18. Gloves – 1
  19. Water bottle – 1
  20. Towel – 1
  21. Maps
  22. Snicker/Energy bar
  23. Brush and paste – 1
  24. Petroleum jelly – 1 (small)
  25. Medicines for fever, cold and inhaler

Optional items that I didn’t take, but, you might:

  1. Head lamp/torch
  2. Sleeping bag
  3. Whistle
  4. Altitude sickness medicine (Diamox)
  5. Water purification tablet
  6. Sunscreen lotion
  7. Sunglass
  8. Foot powder
  9. Tissue paper

Whatever you take, you need to keep in mind that, you have to carry those by yourself. So, make sure to keep it as light as possible and don’t make it heavier than 8 KG.

    Hi Fuad,
    How did trekking with the Farpoint go?
    I am planning to take my Farpoint55 with me but I am not sure if it is a good idea as it hasn’t been made for trekking.
    Was it comfortable through the whole trip?
    Thanks

      Hi Charlie,
      Personally, I would have not taken a 55, it looks bigger than my likings. I am not well build, but I didn’t face any issue carrying 40. I would recommend you to go with the 40 instead. Feel free to let me know if you have any query, would be glad to answer 🙂

      Thanks.
