Many trekkers set out on monsoon treks in the Himalayas or Western Ghats and find that all their clothes are soaked. Most of them make the mistake of relying solely on a raincover and a poncho.
But when it rains like it does in the Himalayas, neither is a raincover enough for your backpack, nor is a poncho. So here are some effective tips and a foolproof method to keep your gear dry.
In the above video, we have included a bit about how to avoid hypothermia when it is freezing in the mountains and your surroundings are wet.
There is also a small section where we answer questions often asked by trekkers – “Does it rain all the time during monsoon?” and “Do I need water-proof pants?”
Take a look and have a dry monsoon trek! Good luck!
