What should I pack when moving to Mussoorie?

Answer this Question

We asked people living in Mussoorie to list three things they wish they had brought and three they wish they had left behind. They responded...

"Three things I wish I had brought: a good pair of winter slippers, because houses here are uninsulated, so the winters can be cooler inside than out; another set of good kitchen knives, since ones we have found here are not of very good quality; another pair of indestructible sandals from some of the big name brands, since here you can get cheap sandals custom-made...but they also require resoling, and have no arch support! Thee things I wish I had left at home: electric blanket, because even despite a transformer & converter, it still blew and now the fancy function doesn't work; our queen-size fitted sheets that we were told to bring, because you can't get fitted sheets here--only to find out that 'queen size' is really closer to king, it being two single beds pushed together; my winter coats, because you can manage just fine with a sweater and t-shirt, silk underwear and normal clothes, and so on - winter coats are a waste of space and it's not cold enough," said another expat in Mussoorie, India.

"When moving to Mussoorie, it is important to pack clothing suitable for the climate. Mussoorie has a subtropical climate, so lightweight clothing made of natural fabrics such as cotton and linen is recommended. It is also important to bring a good supply of sunscreen and insect repellent. Additionally, it is a good idea to bring a first aid kit, as well as any necessary medications. Other items to consider packing include a flashlight, a power adapter, and a water filter. Finally, don't forget to bring a camera to capture all the beautiful sights of Mussoorie," wrote a member who made the move to Mussoorie, India.
