  • Repellant: Must-have-item in your kit; with approximate 70,000 different types of insects moving around in your surroundings, it’s obvious to take better protection along everywhere and every time. Use it at least thrice a day, before lunch after a bath you must apply a nice layer of bug repellant and also a few minutes before entering the forest area.
  • Appropriate clothing: No matter if they are fresh; they should be loose and breathable for your skin and at that temperature level quick-dry type too. Leave the denim or cotton at all costs! No denim or cotton clothes, it is the worst gear choice. Carry body covering light-weight outfit. Wear hiking boots and the ones with waterproof soles, not normal sports-shoes.

  • Do not touch: No one likes to be poked without any reason, stay away from practically everything because the animals and insects have developed certain camouflage with nature. Try not to pull any vines, or touch the bark of any tree; you might have no idea of what could come up to surprise you and your mates. Be observant, of everything around you (even your group).
