Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things you didn't do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. ~ Mark Twain

Before You Travel

1GENERAL TIPS

General Tips


  • Pack light! Rucksack & Backpack 60L is recommended. No suitcases pleases.
  • You will definitely need a good quality shoe with ankle support for this trip as there's lots of walks and hikes in the forest. This is very important !! I recommend SALOMON brand.
  • Keep in mind to bring some warm clothing. Although it can be sunny in the daytime with temperatures around 19-26 degrees Celsius, the temperature can drop to around 7-10 degrees Celsius at night in the mountains.
  • Do bring earplugs to allow you to get a good night’s sleep.
  • Bring a flashlight.
  • Bring you ATM visa/mastercards. Ensure you have sufficient funds.
  • Shoes are not to be worn inside temples or Ashrams. Generally shoes are not worn inside most buildings. Footwear is usually left outside at the entrance of the building.
  • Buy an over-the-neck passport bag or money-belt to carry money and passport.
  • Don't look into the eyes of monkeys and don't feed them as they may take your whole bag away!
  • Never walk alone at night wherever you are in India.

Do not drink any water from taps unless you know it has been filtered with a very good water filter as one can become very ill from drinking contaminated water. You can buy sealed bottled water in the supermarkets or general stores; ensure to check the seal on the bottle cap. India is a place of amazing delicacies and taste ! There are plenty of good restaurants with a variety of foods for both Western oriented minds, as well for those who like to eat local Indian food. Most HOLY places are vegetarian so don’t expect to find any meat, fish or egg. Always ask for food without HOT & SPICY.
1CURRENCY

The country currency is Indian Rupees. There are ATM cash machines at the airport and throughout India where one can withdraw cash using a credit card or a bankcard. Major currencies such as US dollars, British pounds and Euros are easy to change. Remember, you must present your passport whenever you change currency or travellers cheques. You can check the exchange rate for your currency on a web site such as www.xe.com.
