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
  • raincoat
  • swimwear
  • towel
  • toilet paper
  • medicine
  • camera
  • waterproof bag (if available)
  • moskito repellent
  • sunblock
  • torch
  • 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.
