Travel notes

Please bring your own water to drink because there's no 'treated' water supply along the trail. Thus, it's unnecessary to bring lots of heavy bottles of water along; one container will suffice. Suggested 2 litres must be carried for each person.

Outfit Recommendations

• Dry fit T-shirt
• Hiking pants
• Close-toed shoes

Safety notices

• Dress appropriately. Make sure other people can see you. Camouflage is not encouraged. Wear close-toed shoes. Avoid slipper and sandal.
• Coming down can be more painful (especially on the knees) than climbing up because of sore muscles and tired legs. Take it slowly and don't jam the toes into the front of the shoes.
• Bringing along muscular ache relief cream and knee/ankle supports may be helpful.
• It's better for you to do 'Cooling Down' right after the hike.
