Travelling to India & landing in Delhi. Planning a trek but don't want to pack & carry my camping gear with me. Will pack our backpack, steripen & boots but any place in Delhi where we can buy woolens & other reasonable quality trekking & camping gear for cheap?

Sharing below answers posted by one of our Local Experts on the GoPo forum.

Depending on which area you are trekking to, you may well be able to hire what you require. For instance, Uttarkashi which is on the way for many treks has several places to hire gear from. Your trek guide may be in a better position to help you with suggestions. Also, would recommend you bring your water filter with you. Bringing your steriPEN is a good idea but would recommend that you bring the filters along as they may not be easily available to buy or rent in India.
