It gives clear visions to them whether there is any fountain, oasis, rocky hills or any wild animals. But above everything, binoculars help them in getting the clear views of the places where they cannot reach by their feet. The peak of Kanchenjunga is observed easily through the lenses of binoculars from Tiger Hills. The wild beasts and the exotic birds cannot be enjoyed properly from the watch towers if not seen through the lenses of binoculars.

But sometimes it is difficult to carry heavyweight tripods while traveling and for that reason the travelers of the modern days prefer to use pocket tripods which are lighter in weight and cheaper in price. Travelers can easily buy them from the markets in affordable prices starting from 400 to 5,000 rupees.

First-aid Kit

Headache is another most common problem faced by most of the travelers because of the changes in altitude. Traveling on the High altitude places often causes headaches, colds and fevers to the tourists, so it is suggested to keep all the medicines in the first-aid kit while packing the travel bags. Keeping pain killing tablets can be a wise decision for the sudden accidental issues which are quite common in forest and hilly areas.
