What to pack

Since Inda is such a huge country with a very varied climate, it is impossible to have a standard packing list. If staying mostly in the lowlands, then it would be fine with only light clothing. However if you plan to spend time in the Himalaya or Hillstations it is advisable to bring warmer clothing. It is also possible to buy warm clothes locally for a cheap price.
