Important Tips – In preparation for your trek activity

Volcanoes Mountains is a high altitude area of over 2,400 meters above sea level. It is extremely chilly in the early mornings and evenings – warm clothing is therefore necessary.  While trekking, it can rain unexpectedly – it is necessary therefore to have:

  • Water-proof clothing (jacket, with hood + trousers);
  • Waterproof Zip-Lock bags for Cameras/Film/Passports/Money, e.t.c.;
  • Hand Gloves (warm and water-proof), to keep hands warm and dry, as well as protect from stinging nettles;
  • Hiking boots – with good mud-grip are most appropriate, especially in wet weather;
  • Gaiters – to protect your trek trouser legs and boots against mud/wetness;
  • Small hand/face towel, to wipe sweat off your face during the trek.
