Guide to Surviving in the jungle
- Don't travel at
night as visibility is low.
- Don't drink unboiled or stagnant
water. If you have to, look for a moving stream with
clear running water.
- Don't eat any fruits or plants unless
you know they are edible.
- Don't leave camp without informing
- Don't stray away from other trekkers.
Safety in numbers.
- Stay healthy. Don't take unnecessary
risks like climbing rocks and trees.
- Important items that a trekker must
possess - a large knife and waterproof matches or
- Check with your guide or expedition
leader whether it is save to swim in the river. Rivers
may look save but if there are heavy rain up stream, the
river water level may swell in a very short time and can
sweep away even a very strong swimmer.
- If you are lost,
back track and check your bearings before continuing.
- Stay put because it would be easier
for the rescue teams to locate you than if you were to
wander around aimlessly.
- Listen to the sounds of water, either
stream of river. Follow it down stream until it leads
you back to civilisation.
- Always think of self-preservation and
never take unnecessary risks.
- Try to leave some sort of mark along
your path by systematically slashing leaves or tree
barks so that you can find your way back if necessary.
