IS THERE A CHANCE OF GETTING MALARIA?
Yes. Travelling in areas like South East Asia increases the chance of malaria infection. But there is always a 'however'. The chance of getting infected can be reduced to a minimum. You can take anti-malaria medicine or prevent being sting by mosquitos as much as possible. You can do this to cover up your body (long sleeves) en use insect repellent. Malaria is also migrating. In other words; The parasite carried by the mosquito spreads and redraws. In case of an outbreak, we are the first to know and will inform our guests. World wide there are many kinds of malaria. The one in Cambodia is a mild one and you can be fully cured with a 3 day cure. If you have a good healthy and physical condition, even a one or two stings from a mosquito carrying the parasite won't hurt you. In this matter you can question your self if the matter malaria is not oversaturate by the pharmaceutical industry. Of course the responsibility whether or not you take anti malaria is with the guests.
ARE THERE ANY POISONOUS SNAKE OR OTHER HARMFUL INSECTS?
Yes. Until now there is no report of tourists being bitten by a poisonous snake in Koulen mountain or Ratanakiri the northeast Cambodia.The sensitive body of a snake detects movement of people long before they get the chance to step on it and will flee. The most common stinging insect is probably the scorpion. The sting can be painful but not dangerous. To prevent being stinged always check your shoes and cloths before putting them on. Also check your bags.
ARE THERE STILL UNEXPLODED ORDNACE IN CAMBODIA?
Yes. Laos and Cambodia were heavily bombed during the Vietnam war. Despite this fact jungle trekking in Koulen Mountain, Rattanakiri or anywhere in Cambodia is still very safe. The B-52 bombers flew at an altitude that they could not be seen. The bombs dropped felt faster than the speed of sound. Bombs that did not explode penetrated the relatively soft soil several meters. Now their remaining are at a save depth. Anti personnel mines are (according to official records) not used in this area. One exception is the former Ho Chi Min trail. In this area war remnants are still scattered around. However, our treks are organized outside this area.
HOW DO WE OBTAIN DRINKING WATER DURING A TREK?
We start the trek with 2,5L drinking water contained in aluminum bottles. During the day we can purify water with professional water pumps. At the campsite we boil water for 10 minutes to make itsafe.
