Tips

  • Choose practical and comfortable clothes that can be easily colour coordinated.
  • Dress in layers as weather conditions change frequently even in summers.
  • Sneakers and comfortable walking shoes/sandals are ideal footwear and remember to pack cotton socks as it will absorb the moisture.
  • Pack a brimmed hat and wraparound sunglasses to stay safe from UV rays.
  • Take advantage of short-walk opportunities to stretch your legs and keep the circulation going.
  • If you’re travelling with children, pack a few games to keep them occupied during the journey.
  • Check with your guide if there’s optional excursions at any stops on your trek.
  • Black water rafting may involve scrambling through narrow passages, rappelling and waterfall drops.
