What food is provided during the trek?

All meals are provided with the trek including lunch in I Tub village, dinner at the conservation centre, breakfast at the conservation centre and lunch at Veun Sai town overlooking the Sesan River. Please note that there is no possibility of cooking different food for individuals. Please let us know at the time of booking if you are a vegetarian.

Is there Malaria?

Like much of rural Cambodia, the site has mosquitoes which may carry malaria.Malaria can be potentially fatal if contracted and as such clients are advised to seek medical advice concerning malaria avoidance prior to visiting the site. Avoiding being bitten by mosquitoes is the most effective way to avoid malaria.

Many travelers to Cambodia also choose to take malarial prophylaxis, medication which prevents malaria in the case of infection. If you become ill after leaving the site, be aware that you may have malaria and need to seek immediate medical advice.

What happens in the case of bad weather?

Cambodia experiences a dry season and a green season. The dry season occurs each year from about November to June. The wet season comprises the remainder of the year, with rain and flooding occurring in varying degrees of intensity. Hence we will only be running treks for 8 months each year. During this period we plan to take back to back treks, however, at certain times it can be difficult to walk up and down the mountains. If the weather is particularly bad then there could be some blackout dates during this period. We will endeavor to take treks with limited interruptions.

Some tips from past travelers…

  • If you can fit it in your bags bring some pencils and paper for the kids at the village I am sure they would appreciate it – I forgot to do this and I regretted it..
  • Bring long socks to tuck your trousers into for the night hike and the Gibbon spotting – there are some spiky plants out there..
  • Take ear plugs – unfortunately there is illegal logging going on all around the forest and through the night the noise of the chainsaws are loud..
  • I believe dry season is the easiest time for Gibbon Spotting and the cycling however, wet season brings more wildlife to the Savannah and the forest..

What to bring

We recommend bringing with you the following:

  • A set of neutral – coloured cloths of natural fibers (cotton)
  • Long trousers
  • Long sleeved shirt x 2 (A clean set for the night)
  • Walking Boots
  • Walking Socks
  • A hat
  • Shorts
  • Fleece Jacket or sweater
  • Sandals or flip flops
  • A spare pair of socks
  • Some Personal toiletries
  • Sun scream
  • Sun glasses
  • Insect repellent
  • Swim Suit
  • Travel towel
  • Binoculars
  • Torch or headlamp
  • Personal first aid kit including any necessary medication such as anti-malarial pills.
  • A small day-pack to carry your camera etc…
