Let me now share the gear that I normally carry or you could say the essential gear list. I admit that there are times I carry a few more things not in this list, but then that is a personal choice you will need to make.
Camera 1 ( 1 Camera Body)
Kit Lens (18-55 &/or 24-105 as I am on Canon)
Wide angle ( You may have 10-22 / 10-18 for Crop or 14mm / 16-35)

Large Size Plastic Carry Bag ( More / Big Bazaar / Spenser 5 Rs bag i.e largest size bag)

Extra piece of soft cotton cloth to wrap the camera to protect from dew in early mornings
Additional battery, in cold weather they get discharged faster.

If you are owning a single body you are still good to go for the trip, double body is not a a prerequisite.
Do not forget your telelens, even though this is a Landscape Location, this is very handy lens for getting closer to some landscape which are out of reach by road / walk. It also helps to get close to place which look better from a distant vantage point.
If you have a shutter release cable, you can still do a fairly good time-lapse by manually firing it using your watch / stopwatch in your mobile. ( accepted that it may not be perfect and also a little tedious process )
Note: if you have any questions, comment below and I will be happy to answer.
