Luggage and bags: Any trip especially to the snowy mountains require a lot of planning and preparation. BEWARE that even in the most pleasant mountain weather, temperature can change drastically!

Make sure you use a sturdy, waterproof backpack preferably or quality luggage which can easily be slung on your shoulders to keep your hands free to hold other things!

Clothing/Shoes/Weather Gear: Hence be prepared for the worst conditions so take a thick waterproof jacket, overtrousers, wooly socks, wooly hats/beanie, waterproof gloves, thermal underwear (tops & bottom) medium with top and jersey or fleece jacket/jumper and sunglasses or goggles to prevent snow blindness.

Toiletries and Medical Supplies: Lip balm and sunblock are essential ) It might be snowing but sometimes the sun is also intense. First aid is always a good thing to take for a mountain trip.

Photo Equipment: Waterproof cameras/video cameras if you can manage them
