Packing Guide To Hiking The Tropics

Planning a hike, trek or walk in a hot, humid place like Papua New Guinea or any other tropical climate? You’ve come to the right place. In this PACKING GUIDE I explain everything that goes into my backpack for a multi day hike for the tropical, wet and often unpredictable climate on a tropical island. I discuss my choice of outdoor clothing, shoes, dry sacks, wet weather gear, water sanitisation, emergency supplies and plenty of other outdoor accessories – all of which will make your experience that little easier – especially the coffee!
