Packing for a stay at Tira Vilagna is easy; you don’t have to glam up as most of our guests tend to dress very casually, so choose clothes that are comfortable for walking, trekking and cycling. Bring T-shirts and shorts, long pants, a jacket and a sweater. Even during the dry season, rain is always a possibility so bring a lightweight waterproof jacket; it can sometimes be a bit windy and this will also help keep you warm. Likewise, a lightweight fleece could be useful for mountain trekking. It is important to be respectful of the local culture and customs; bring clothes that cover your shoulders and knees for temple visits. You might want to bring at least one smart-casual outfit for sunset cocktails and evening meals, and don’t forget your swimwear. A day backpack is useful on day trips to carry things such as your water bottle, camera, binoculars, and rain jacket. Be sure to pack sunscreen with a high enough SPF to protect your skin from the sun’s damaging rays. A wide brimmed hat or cap will keep the strong equatorial sun off your face and neck. Sunglasses keep your eyes protected and add a little glam to your photos. Pack comfortable trainers, trekking sandals, sturdy walking shoes or hiking boots for hikes and walks. Bring socks to wear inside your walking shoes to avoid getting blisters.
