A Journey through Adung Long Valley

Baggage:
As general rule when packing for wilderness expeditions keep personal gear to a minimum. Please avoid large framed suitcase as they can be rather cumbersome to porters but use a medium size duffle bag instead. The weight limit on domestic airlines is 20 Kg and only 2 x check-in bags and one carry on bag are allowed. Excess baggage will be charged at up to US$ 3 per Kg. Your day pack should be a medium volume without a frame which can hold your personal belonging such as medication, camera, extra clothes, water etc.

Clothing:
Should be lightweight, dry quickly, and provide insulation even when wet, synthetic fibre is preferable to cotton. The brushed nylon pants are ideal for trekking. Lightweight long sleeved shirt is useful as sunscreen and leeches protection while trekking. A good quality raincoat and pants are ideal as hey will keep you warm and dry in a variety of situations. Bring a thick sweater or fleece sweat shirt to wear in the evenings, when temperatures decline considerably. A lightweight jacket or windbreaker will also be useful. For longer treks and higher altitude treks waterproof pants, gaiters, additional socks, thermal hats and gloves are highly recommended.

Foot ware:
Lightweight hiking boots or good quality running shoes are must for the lowland trek. For people who do not routinely walk in the mountains, light hiking boots are strongly recommended. It is essential your walking boots be comfortable and broken-in.

Personal items:
Please also bring personal item such as flashlight or headlamp with spare batteries, water purifying tablets and lighter. A pocketknife, reading and writing material and personal first aid kit would also be essential for your convenience.

Protection against insect bite:
Most part the jungle is free from biting insects, but we do encounter plenty of insects in the low land such as sand flies around the river banks and leaches in the lowland bushes. It's important to use insect repellent to keep the insects away.
