What do I carry on my Pilgrimage?

Here is a suggested list of items to carry on your pilgrimage to Sabarimala

  • Vesti / Dhothi – 2 (Black, Blue or Saffron)
  • T Shirt – 2-3 (dark colors)
  • Shorts – 1 (Optional)
  • Undergarments – 3 (these can to be washed and reused)
  • Irumudi towel – 1 – for tying the Irumudi to your head while treking
  • Blanket – Light – It is not too cold nowadays
  • Pouch – to keep money
  • Flashlight (LED) – 2 flashlights with 1 set of extra batteries
  • Light backpack
  • Kerala style light towel – to dry yourself after a bath. This kind dries real fast.
  • Your prescription medicines (if any)
  • Light Poncho (in case it rains)
  • Your ORIGINAL ID Card – the one you used for Virtual Queue – VERY IMPORTANT.
  • XEROX COPY IS NOT ACCEPTABLE
  • Paper Napkins / Wet Wipes (optional)
  • First Aid supplies (only the essentials – don’t overdo it)
  • Charger for your mobile phone
  • Please do NOT bring any expensive watch or other expensive items (Camera, iPhone, etc.) There are pick-pockets in Sabarimala and you don’t want to be a victim.

Please remember: You will be carrying these items for a full week. Please pack sensibly. Remember to carry only the absolute necessary items needed.
