Ladakh! Yup, you heard it right. The most magnificent and diverse adventure destinations for every other travel geek. Rocky Mountains, broken road patches, unexpected rainfalls and a weather that is truly punishing if you are not prepared. But amidst all this, it is the green and serene landscape, crystal clear lakes and open roads beneath the star lit sky that makes Ladakh a true marvel built by mother nature.
Many of us are still dreaming of this lifetime adventure tour but for those who have already scheduled theirs, here are some very important things you must carry with you to make your trip a super duper hit!
Yes, you will definitely need a headlamp or a torch that serves the purpose…to light your surroundings when it’s dark. Ladakh is prone to power cuts. In case you are camping outdoors then you don’t want to wake up next to a wild animal that is hungry.
So we recommend the Actik Core Headband that serves multiple purposes. You can use it while walking around under the in the nights or simply hang it inside the tent. It comes with different light modes that can be used for different situations.

Now it gets difficult to carry different sized tools and then keep digging for it in the backpack when needed. How cool would it be if you can just wear the tools around… and still look stylish? Yes, that’s totally happening!
The Tread Multi-Tool Bracelet by Leatherman is the coolest way to carry all the tools you need. It has 29 types of tools with an all locking feature, when your gadgets or the bike need a little hand, you got more than what it needs!

Water in the Leh can be way too hard for your stomach to take, it can cause serious trouble to your health. Well, it is obvious you can’t bring your brand new water purifying filter system to the trip, but instead you can carry the Katadyn BeFree Water Filter System…sounds like a machine, no, it’s just a water bottle that can filter out all the harm any water can cause to your body. Fill water anywhere on the way, even from the running river, just squeeze the bottle and it will deliver healthy filtered water.

Dude! You need a kickass camera. I would say take a camera that can take a solid beating and still survive through the whole trip. GoPro is the best in the business if you are the “master of breaking cameras”. You can pick your favorite model that best suits your purpose.
