    Things to bring:

    A good rucksack/backpack with plenty of food and water for 2 days (no food will be available in the forest)

    Sleeping bag/(1 Tarpaulin sheet (9x12)+Bed-sheet)

    Plenty of snacks


    Medicines you take, Electral powder for all

    Good trekking shoes (no spare socks etc)

    Good torchlight/Headlamp

    Camera (optional)

    and do not bring anything else


    Just like any wild trek, risk and caution are necessary.

    The entire trek path, excluding the boat ride, will be in dry rocky paths that can be very strenuous. Don't expect exotic waterfalls and such locations. There might be waterfalls based on the amount of rains this year. So can't tell.

    We will be walking in the same path both the days.

    Be prepared to brave the sun at its fullest. I hope it won't be too sunny.. but nevertheless be prepared.

    There will be a lot of dew and many insects in the forest - so the sleeping bag/tarpaulin is a must.

    We'll carry an extra bag to clean up the place as we go. It is our responsibility.

    We will not destroy any part of the forest, approach any nest, hunt, chase or intrude any animal's habitat.

    Novice swimmers are not allowed into the water.

    Group Size: - 12 including the organisers. People will be in the waiting list. As soon as the payment is done they will be moved to the yes list
