What to take

Action Asia - - PAPUA, INDONESIA -

To trek in the re­gion you will need to take al­most all food (which can be pur­chased in Dekai) and camp­ing equip­ment with you. Beyond Mabul there is no trekking in­fra­struc­ture at all, so ev­ery­thing needs to be planned and pre­pared, ex­pe­di­tion-style. Anti-malar­i­als (e.g. malarone), a small wa­ter pu­ri­fier, an­tibi­otics (cuts get in­fected eas­ily and are slow to heal) and in­sect spray are essen­tial. The best footwear is prob­a­bly a good qual­ity pair of jun­gle boots e.g. Well­cos.
