Naran What to Pack
If you’re heading to Naran to hike or camp in Kaghan Valley, you’re going to need to know what to pack!
The weather in Naran can be really unpredictable so you’ll want to pack layers of clothing that you can throw on or peel off as needed. When you’re hiking, have sweaters and jackets with you because it can get cold at any time. Waterproof coats and hiking boots are also recommended as well as an umbrella if you have room in your backpack for it. Break in your hiking boots before your trip and confirm that the sole is durable.
Bring both a sun hat and a wool cap since you will most likely end up needing both. Waterproof gloves that are warm enough for the chilly weather are also a must. You’ll also want sandals if you’re camping overnight so you can kick off your hiking boots at the end of the day.
