FYI and Guidelines

  1. Weather: Updates based on dates of travel
  2. We recommend that you wear earthy-colored cotton clothing for walks during the day. Full pants are highly recommended for better protection against snake-bites and scratches from thorny undergrowth.
  3. Since we will explore the location on foot and in mountainous terrain, we recommend you wear comfortable walking/trekking shoes for the trip.
  4. Please bring your binoculars along - you will appreciate the sights of the forests much more with binoculars on hand. We will have a pair or two to share amongst us, but it is recommended that you carry your own.
  5. Please bring essential medication with you, since the local outlets will not always carry what you are looking for. Do check with your doctor on medication and medical safety if you have any medical condition.
