* Second bag: You will need to bring a bag which is large enough to store items not required for the 3-day trek on the Yedigoller Plateau. This bag will stay with the vehicles and does not have to be waterproof or particularly robust. It should be able to fit in your main baggage when not being used.

** Water purification tablets: At all the camps on trek spring water is available and good to drink. However you might wish to treat this water to be extra safe.
