5. Coriminic for runny and stuffy nose
6. Enterogermina for indigestion/stomach upset
7. Domstal for vomiting
8. Oximeter for monitoring the oxygen levels.
9. Oxygen cylinders of 100 litres

That's a good list.

I also carry the following for kids.

1. Ondem 5mg for vomiting.
2. Meftal for very high fever (if the fever does not go down by Calpol and remains above 102).
3. Levocet for cold.
4. Colicaid for mold stomach ache.
5. Renifol Z for stomach infection.
6. Nor - Metronidizol for dysentery.
7. Nazoclear for nose congestion.
8. Mama earth stomach roll on for upset stomach and gas (from Amazon).
9. Lactocalamine for children for bites, skin rash etc.
10. Sudocream for nappy rash, mild cuts etc.
11. Azee (antibiotic). Some remote places where you may not get it and your doctor recommends it.
12. Kofarest for cough.
13. ORSL tetrapack 200 ml each, for kids above 2 years.

All above are tried and tested, and you can also confirm them from your paediatrician.

Thanks for liking the TL. Yes, I was also shocked after hearing the news of the incident. It's best to be careful while driving on that route. Considering the lose cattle and villagers on the narrow winding roads, the aftermath of a small kiss can be deadly.

Thanks for liking the Travelogue. We were tensed too but we were well prepared for such situations and recommend fellow travellers to take adequate precautions while travelling with toddlers.

Thanks Sourav. Surely it was a challenge for us.

No, we were not stuck but what I meant was that with XUV AWD it is best driven on the road(with tar or without tar) rather than driving it off the road.

Thanks Samba. Yes, surely the Ameo did keep up with XUV.
Loved the pictures you shared of your trip to North Sikkim in your Etios.

Thanks Anirban KIL! Most of my family members and friends say we are mad. Mad as they hear our plans and say it is not possible to execute without hiccups. After we complete the trip they go silent.

Hope other readers also kept a note of the same.

Lovely detailed travelogue with awesome pictures lovecars21

Glad to know that you had taken adequate precautions with your bundle of joy. We too had ordered for an Oxygen Cylinder while going but unfortunately it wasn't delivered on time. However, Diamox worked fine and we were OK for most of the journey barring Gurudongmar Lake where my daughter (13Years) was feeling a bit down and we didn't stay there for more than 30 minutes.

Yumthang dressed in white looks fabulous in your photos. We, on the other hand, got to see this

Not really. We had been travelling with our daughter since she was 3 months old. Packing her essentials correctly is pretty much all that is required. Back in the last century, there weren't much of facilities one could depend on, but then we never really needed anything we were not already carrying.

We forbade the idea of covering long distances at one go as this might be tiring as well as boring for little Ishaan.
...
Kolkata to Siliguri, a distance of 560 kms to be covered in the night
Our strategy had been to cover distances overnight, so the baby sleeps while I drive. We still do that!

...carry enough warm clothes.
Can't stress this enough. And quite a few blankets.

More water tends in a moving car tends to make babies throw up.

...I modified the LED bar in my XUV to tackle extreme fog situation. Dismantled the LED bar, cleaned the front glass thoroughly and applied yellow film.
Yellow or white, the colour of the light makes very little difference to beam penetration in fog. What makes a difference is the positioning of the light (correct as in your case, set low to the ground), and the beam pattern (spread-out beam). It is no surprise that yellow fog lamps are hardly ever seen on modern cars.

Subhayan must have had the driving experience of a lifetime on this trip!

Beautifully written travelogue about a truly wonderful adventure. The detailed descriptions of things you had taken for the trip will surely be helpful for anyone who plans to travel with small kids. The pictures are also awesome, and clearly shows the look of awe and excitement in young Ishaan's eyes. Cant wait to go on a trip with him soon
