Jungle trekking can cause some unplanned situations – from weather changes, to exhaustion or health issues. Therefore it is better to be prepared for everything. Here is a packing list for jungle trekking in Sumatra.
- small backpack
- change of clothes
- toilet paper
- waterproof bag (if available)
- moskito repellent
- sandals/ flip flops (to walk around the camp)
Try to make your luggage as light as possible.
If you go for 2 or more days we will refill your water bottle at the camp with boiled water.
Clothes: Nights can be chilly in the jungle, so we recommend bringing long sleeve shirts and trousers/leggins. Wearing something comfortable is most important. No need to wear long clothes during the trek as there are few moskitos and leeches.
Shoes: No dedicated hiking boots needed, but you may use them of course. Trainers with a good grip are also possible.
