On Trek
Listen to your leader,
Wait for all personnel to arrive before going on
Groups should never separate
When trails become narrow, walk in single line
Where the trail is unclear and there are no locals to advise, take the most trodden route. In event of Lost

...Many trekkers have become lost by wandering off alone - stubbornly choosing their own way over the majority's voice. If nightfall is closing and the intended destination is not visible, head towards the nearest settlement. Do not struggle on regardless risking a potentially fatal night out in the cold. In jungle, always move towards a ridge top, paths will invariably be found there. In valley bottoms, always move downstream towards lower ground where the likelihood of settlements is greater. Pneumonia and hypothermia are the main causes of death for lost trekkers.

So take all precautions and Happy Trekking . . .
