Recommended things to bring along: 

  • While hiking in the rain forest you are likely to encounter rain, so bring along a light rain jacket and heavy duty waterproof backpack and wear quick-drying clothes and waterproof hiking shoes
  • We provide you with a tent to sleep in, along with a yoga mat to sleep on. To make your tent more comfortable for the night, we suggest bringing along your own sleeping bag that will provide more warmth. Although Palawan is a tropical island, the night-time temperatures can drop below 17°C-62°F.
  • Personal medications – There are a lot of mosquitos in the jungle of Palawan. Don’t underestimate them, as they are the most deadly animal in the world. Diseases transmitted by mosquitoes include: malaria, dengue, filariasis and Japanese encephalitis. It is extremely important to take antimalarial tablets and use an effective insect repellent containing 25-50% DEET to clothing and any exposed skin to avoid mosquito bites.
  • Long pants, sweaters, and socks as it gets cold at night
  • A hiking pole may be useful when descending the mountain as it reduces the impact on your legs, knees, ankles, and feet, and is good for balance, especially on steep slippery terrain.
  • Flip-flops
  • Packaged snacks
  • Drinking water

Best time to go
