    Saving oneslf from the uv!

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Clothing/Shoes/Weather Gear: Its necessary to carry a pair of sunglasses and sunscreen lotion. Additionally, I managed well with a Rajasthani 'Bandhni' dupatta or scarf. It gave me the traditional look as well saved me from the sun. Even in Jan-Feb, the days can be real hot. But then the nights are chilly. So woolens is a must in winter, as well as some summer clothes for the day.

    Toiletries and Medical Supplies: I asked my driver about a medical shop, and he told me that its some miles away. People is the desert scarcely fall ill. Medicines shops are very few (given that I was staying near the market), compared to any big city! No pollution, blue sky, green grass (yeaa, I did see them in Jaisalmer) definitely has something to do with this. So, its good not to depend and carry your own medicines.

    Miscellaneous: When in desert camel safari, its good to keep a water bottle because dehydration happens even before you notice.

    Packing list for camel trek

    by Willettsworld Written Nov 25, 2007

    Clothing/Shoes/Weather Gear: Take as little as possible on your camel trek. I went on a 2-day trek and took my small day pack with the following things:

    1. Camera (essential)
    2. Water bottle - water is provided
    3. Torch - there's no light at your overnight stop. Also helps your guide out as well.
    4. Toiletries
    5. Another change of clothes (especially if going on a 3-day trek)
    6. Warm top (as it gets a little cool at night)
    7. Cushions to sit on whilst on the camel
    8. Any snack food (although we were well fed)

    Clothing/Shoes/Weather Gear: Take a hat - you will be in the middle of the desert. Also if goig camel trekking make sure to take loose but sturdy clother and wear boxer shorts in preference to other types of underwear (even the girls) to avoid "nappy rash"
