Adventure Essentials

  1. Haversack – This is the most important thing you need. Choose a good backpack which can sustain the weight throughout the trek. (Make sure that you do not carry any Jholas, one-side bags etc.) In the Rainy Season, We prefer to use a big plastic bag inside the haversack to keep the things dry.
  2. At least 2 liters of water bottle. Be wise while consuming the water during our Adventure Journey. (you may add Glucon D or energy powder, if/as/when you require it)
  3. Extra pair of clothes as per the season. We prefer Full sleeve clothes while on trek. (Towel, Rain coat, Sun cap, Thermal wears as required). An extra plastic bag for wet/used clothes would be helpful.
  4. Trekking shoes – Shoes/floaters with good grip. Team Via Ferrata suggests ‘Action Trekking’ shoes for Sahyadri region. You may choose any other brand according to your comfort.
  5. Bedding material – Sleeping bag / Carry mat / Blanket etc. (not applicable for one dayers).
  6. Torch with extra batteries. We do not recommend using your mobiles as torch as the mobile might be needed in an emergency. Hence, it is important to save on the mobile battery.
  7. Plate, Mug, Spoon etc. We prefer to carry our own plates etc. to the forts. This will help us to keep the nature litter free. (Compulsory for Overnight stay Treks)
  8. Personal medical kit, a set of medicines for any personal allergies, insect repellents or the medicines as per your doctor’s suggestion etc.
