Things to carry for your next hill station vacation

So, you’ve finally booked the tickets for your hill station vacation. Now the next big task at hand is packing for the trip. We start by making a list of things to carry for the trip. Generally, there are two types of packers. The first is the over packers who pack almost a truckload of things as the “Just in case” factor haunts them. And then there are the under packers who miss packing even the essential things as they concentrate only on keeping their luggage light. Hill stations are generally cool places for which you will need to pack certain items. In this blog, we have put together a list of things you need to pack for your hill station vacation to ensure an enjoyable trip.

Warm Clothes

This one is a no-brainer. It is on top of the checklist for hill station packing due to the cold climate. Make sure you check the temperature of the location and pack accordingly. You don’t need to wear boring sweaters to stay warm. You can opt for a warm leather jacket, or have fun by adding layers to your clothing. Windcheaters, Mufflers, sweaters/pullovers, socks, gloves are the other stuff you may need. You could also pack a thermal for warmth. Add a cute beanie to your luggage and you are good to go.

Comfortable Shoes

Wrong shoes could ruin your trip. Your hill station trip will definitely include activities like trekking, climbing, hiking etc. Therefore, you need to make sure you carry a quality, slip-proof, comfortable pair of shoes. You can carry slippers for your leisure walks.

Skincare Essentials

Your skin tends to get dry due to the cold weather in the hills. You need to thoroughly moisturize your skin to avoid dry skin and apply sunscreen to prevent sunburn and tanning. Lip balm and deodorant are other essentials you need to carry. Also, do not forget to keep tissues and napkins handy.


The sun can be extremely bright in the hills. You need to carry polarized sunglasses to cut the glare and haze of the sun. This way you can admire the beauty of the hills without any issues.


Did we even go on the trip if you do not post awesome pictures on social media? We all love taking pictures. Do not forget to take your camera for your fun trip to the hills.

Power bank

You do not want your phone to die when you are in the middle of your trek. Be sure to pack your trustworthy power bank for your trip.


You cannot trust the climate in the hills. It may start raining anytime. Therefore you need to be prepared. Pack your umbrella or raincoat.

First-aid Kit

The rocky terrain, uncertain climate, and curvy roads of the hills may affect your health. Be sure to pack a first-aid kit comprising of all the emergency medicines, band aids etc.
