Overnight winter trek to Triund. What to wear and pack? A gear guide.

In this article we list what we wore and packed on our overnight winter trek to Triund. We trekked thrice to Triund and beyond in January 2015. On our treks, this gear provided us with adequate protection through a light snowfall and a night temperature that went as low as -5 degrees C. However, do keep in mind that this is only an indicative guide. Your final clothing and gear selection shall depend on what you already own and the weather. Therefore, research the weather for your trek days and dress accordingly.
