3. Pack more waterproof or synthetic clothing
Everything should be waterproof, including your bag and clothing. The best material for long journeys during monsoon is synthetic fabric, which is generally considered more breathable and convenient to pack. Despite being airy and lightweight, they dry quickly. Before you leave, provide your valuables with a good covering or waterproofing solution.
4. Avoid Eating or Drinking from Untrusted Sources
Avoid eating street food as much as possible during the monsoon season. There is a lot of possibility of water contamination during this time of the year, which can put you in a lot of trouble. To be on the safe side, bring your own or buy packaged water. Also cover it without using water. Eat healthy and travel with caution!
5. Avoid indulging in risky activities
Things can go awry very quickly during the rainy season. Rock-climbing, rafting, camping, canyoning and similar sports can be extremely dangerous during the monsoon season, unless led by experienced experts who are aware of the seasonal problems involved in these activities. Make sure you are seeking the help of skilled professionals!
Carry monsoon essentials such as a sturdy umbrella, waterproof backpack, raincoat, waterproof cover for your electronic equipment, power bank for unplanned power outages, medicines, extra clothing and towels.
Have a great trip and be prepared to deal with the monsoons.
