Dharamshala, located in the heart of Kangra Valley, is an ideal destination for travelers looking to unwind in the presence of nature. Surrounded by Cedar forests, the hill station offers a number of stupendous attractions from quaint monasteries to lakes and exotic treks that meet the needs of diverse travelers. Roads are quite good and if you take the route from Chandigarh, driving to Dharamshala can be quite fun. When you’re going there by way of a long road trip, it’s important to plan your trip in time to avoid last minute hassles and forgetting important stuff. To help you get started with your list of essential items to pack, here are six things you must carry with you on your road trip to Dharamshala.
1. Power Bank
Your phone is where you have all your useful apps, from those that let you find ATMs to gas stations to help navigate your way – Google maps. So, it’s important that you keep your phone charged up. A power bank will ensure this, and make your trip easier. We’d also recommend you to carry along a car mobile charger.
2. First Aid Kit
Having an first aid kit looks like an added weight to many, but you never know when you may need it. If you are wondering what all items should you include in your basic first aid kit, here’s some help:
- Ibuprofen, antihistamine, and other medicines
- Electrolyte packets
- Hand sanitizer
- Latex gloves
3. Flash Lights
If your car breaks down due to a puncture or some other reason, you may need a flashlight to fix the issue. Carrying such equipment with you becomes all the more important when you are driving on a mountain road, where help may not be easily available.
4. Duct Tape
A duct tape is one of the most useful items you just can’t afford to not take with you on any road trip. Seal food in packages, fix holes in a backpack, waterproof your shoes, and mark your luggage, you can put a duct tape to countless uses.
5. Healthy Snacks
Pack items such as fruits, nuts, crackers, and granola bars, so that you don’t fall short of energy in case you don’t find a decent restaurant. Also plan to carry a few veggies such as carrots, and cherries, in addition to cookies and juices.
6. Toiletries and other Essentials
Last, but not least, make some room for toiletries for a little more comfortable drive. Include with you a pack of tissue papers – they’ll take care of accidental spills and prevent seats from dirty hands. Other things you can include are cleaning wipes and, of course, toilet paper; you never know when you may have to attend to the nature’s call.
There’s something about a road trip that no other experience, whether travelling by air or sea can offer. Driving on the open road and making occasional stops gives you the ultimate fun, and when driving along the mountainous roads of Dharamsala where you’re enveloped with rich flora and fauna and a salubrious weather, the fun just doubles. To make sure you minimize or eliminate inconveniences, it’s important to you carry all essential items.
