  • Go pro (capturing all the necessary cinematic shots and photographers as content)
  • Trekking boots (providing comfort and making the trip easy and convenient to travel in)


Tips for all the wanderlust-ERS out there


  • Carry all the necessary equipment or either make a proper travel list so that you don’t miss out on anything important
  • Pre-plan the trip 1 month before, and in case you are a budding travel content creator then it’s very important to plan up day-to-day content and topics. So that it becomes easy to manage things on time.
