We had a trekking in the Jungle and we visited Tangkahan. The organisation was excellent and the local guides were very professional and supporting us during all time long. The cuisine during the trekking was excellent and the places we visited very amazing.

My wife and I are 68 and 69 years old respectively. I am a former smoker so lung function is reduced whilst wife has rheumatoid arthritis and we are both overweight. Do you think we could cope with trekk without spoiling it for youner/fitter persons?

Hi all. Myself and my friend are going on the 9 day trek in September 2015. We are from Melbourne and was wondering if anyone got any needles before going on the trek. If so please let me know which ones! Would be much appreciated :)
