Shimla, Jan 05 2011 (Agencies): Its winter time and those of you, who are adventurous, put your boots on and enjoy some adventure in the hills of Himachal Pradesh. Before you do that, keep a checklist in mind.

The foremost thing is that you plan your trip in advance. Confirm the road conditions and whether high mountain passes are open.

Don’t forget to carry heavy woollens, jackets and some eatables as most of the attractive destinations like Chamba, Kullu, Spiti are at high altitudes.

High spirited is good but make sure you are in good health.

Travel with an extra driver if driving during night and do not forget to carry extra fuel.

Do not trek alone and join a small group as at high mountains weather is rough and trekkers might slip from high altitudes as well.

Have a safe and happy trip!
