  • Ziploc bags
  • Headlamp
  • Misc Items – earphones, notebook, small roll of duct tape, 2-3 pens, waterproof watch
  • Hiking shoes and flip flops for hostel showers
  • Miscellaneous clothes that can be thrown out and replaced after repeated wear.
  • Swimsuit
  • Hat
  • Towel
What not to bring (buy them in country for less): 
  • Hand Sanitizer
  • Bug Repellent Lotion
  • Toiletries – Small shampoo, conditioner, razor, soap, deodorant, brush, nail-clippers, half or less roll of toilet paper, sunblock, toothbrush/paste, medications
