Ethiopia -Packing List For An Adventure Trip (Comfy But Not Frumpy)

Going to Ethiopia, Danakil Depression tour was of one the biggest bucket list experiences I wanted to have since I moved to Dubai. When I was planning our trip to Ethiopia, I was confronted with a completely new packing dilemma.

When you have to hike up an active volcano, walk over a sulphur lake and spend your nights in local villages, my best suggestion is to choose comfort above all. But comfy doesn’t have to be frumpy.

You can add kitschy prints, crop tops and quirky accessories to make your outfit fun even for an adventurous travel like Danakil Depression

1) Style your harem pants with a crop top

Loose cotton colorful pants are very comfortable for travelling to hotter climates. Style it with your any light shade plain crop top. It will look super trendy and fun. Trendy harem pants also come in handy on occasions when you want to look like a boho chick in the middle of a desert.

For an adventurous trip, comfort is the key. Jump and shine

2) A cotton checkered shirt with ripped denim shorts

Super comfortable and is never out of fashion. Add ethnic accessory to lend interest to simple ensembles.
