Guide Notes for Trekkers & Campers    

 

  1. Rainy season is between mid December to mid January.

  2. Visitors are requested to help the Department of Wild Life preserve nature' beauty bykeeping litter and noise pollution to the minimum.

  3. Heavy duty gear is recommended. Keep your back packs a light as possible and plan the items that you need to carry.

  4. Leeches is generally not a major problem but they can be a real nuisance if the weather is  wet or the ground is soggy. Insect repellent is normally sprayed on the socks and shoes to keep them at bay.

  5. Things to bring - as a general guide     -  Long sleeve shirt / warm clothes, change of clothes, sturdy walking shoes, (Sport / tennis / gym shoes / hiking shoes), second pair of shoes / pair of sandals, gloves / hat / mask, extra socks, rain and wind gear, rain coat, thick wind breaker, rain cap, towel, toothbrush, tooth paste... etc, tissue paper, toilet roll, sun block & lip gloss, insect repellent, mosquito coil, headache tablets, plasters (for cuts and blisters), deep heat lotion (for muscle cramp), talcum powder,  a couple of plastic bags (for wet clothes, etc), binoculars, camera, waterproof bag for camera, torchlight & fresh batteries, high energy food (eg chocolates, nuts, raisins, glucose) and water bottle

  6. Food items o bring - as a general guide - per person - rice, sardine, sugar, cooking oil, biscuits, tea / milk / coffee, onion, garlic, salt, tinned chicken curry, gas cylinders, soap, chocolates, candle and cabbage

          When choosing what clothes to bring, consider their weight (dry or 

          wet!). Avoid jeans, jacket and other bulky apparel. 

    

Jungle Survival 

 

  • Don't travel at night as visibility is low.

  • Don't drink unboiled or stagnant water. If you have to, look for a moving stream with clear running water.

  • Don't eat any fruits or plants unless you know they are edible.

  • Don't leave camp without informing others.

  • Don't stray away from other trekkers. Safety in numbers.

  • Stay healthy. Don't take unnecessary risks like climbing rocks and trees.

  • Important items that a trekker must possess - a large knife and waterproof matches or lighter.

  • Check with your guide or expedition leader whether it is save to swim in the river. Rivers may look save but if there are heavy rain up stream, the river water level may swell in a very short time and can sweep away even a very strong swimmer.

  Tips - if you get lost 

 

  • If you are lost, back track and check your bearings before continuing.
  • Stay put because it would be easier for your guides or the rescue teams to locate you than if you were to wander around aimlessly.
  • Listen to the sounds of water, either stream of river. Follow it down stream until it leads you back to civilisation.
  • Always think of self-preservation and never take unnecessary risks.
  • Try to leave some sort of mark along your path bysystematically slashing leaves or tree barks so that you can find your way back if necessary.
