JUNGLE TREKKING TIPS


Take plenty of water and pack a few easy to eat snacks to keep energy level up. Unless trekking with a local guide, it is not advisable to eat jungle fruits or drink from rivers and streams.

In the highlands try to trek on the ridgetops to save energy traversing the steep slopes and catch a cool breeze.

Be as quite as possible to avoid scaring any wildlife. Getting an early start during the dawn provides the best chance to sight animals seeking food ad the warmth of the early morning sun.

Wear thin, loose, preferably cotton clothing to remain comfortable.

Cover arms and legs with long trousers and long – sleeved shirts to ward off mosquitoes and t provide protection against thorny plants.

Wear leech socks or long socks to prevent leeches from finding an entry way.
Choose sturdy footwear with proper ankle support and good traction

Be prepared for sudden rain showers by carrying a poncho that wraps over both body and your carrying pack to keep everything dry.

A wide brimmed hat helps to shade a trekker from the heat of the tropical sun
