"Where To Start?" India Packing List Tip by travelinxs

India What to Pack: 105 reviews and 43 photos

Miscellaneous: Having found packing such a headache, I thought an extensive pack list might help others starting out. This is far from exhaustive and only personal to myself and if you can cut it down your life will be easier. It appears under each country destination, adjusted accordingly, so you might want to skip it in future or just refer to the Notes On... at the bottom. Women will obviously have to tweak this a little, such as add tampons and sanitary towels and sports bras for those camel treks and delete sleeping bag and replace with chocolate! (sorry, only joking)

NB: Items followed by ** are substantially cheaper in this country compared to, for example, the UK, without a large sacrifice in quality. If I am unsure of the availability or I feel it might be a hassle to find, I have left ** off. Remember that shopping in a local market is a lot more fun than in M&S back home and you could save a tiny fortune.
