Important Tips
The Volcanoes area is located at an altitude of over 2,400 meters above sea level.
It is extremely chilly in the early mornings and evenings - warm clothing is therefore necessary.
While trekking, it can rain unexpectedly – it is necessary therefore to have:
•    Water-proof clothing (jacket, with hood + trousers);
•    Waterproof Zip-Lock bags for Cameras/Film/Passports/Money, e.t.c.;
•    Hand Gloves (warm and water-proof), to keep hands off from rain and dripping vegetation;
as well as protect from stinging nettles;
•    Hiking boots - with good mud-grip are most appropriate, especially in wet weather;
•    Gaiters – to protect your trek trouser legs and boots against mud/wetness;
•    Any valuables (carried on the person and not necessary during the trek), may be left with your driver-guide for safe-keeping.
