Buying trekking equipment in India

Travel Forums Asia Buying trekking equipment in India

Hi guys,

I wonder if you can help me with this one. I'll be arriving in India in the middle of the summer and I just realised I forgot to buy sandals. How good are the shops in India to buy trekking stuff? Does anyone know of any store in Kolkata? I know some equipment is worth getting at home, but I'm not sure about sandals, I just don't want to pay too much here and when I get there prices are much much cheaper...

Thanx a lot, :)

You will find sandals in Kolkata. There is a bunch to choose from even international brands such as nike and reebok. In Esplanade is Reebok. There is a nike and a reebok shop near Camac street, ask around.
about other trekking material I don't know. For Nepal I know that the citypart Thamel in Kathmandu has a lot of outdoor shops.
