- Do not try to be act smart or funny in any way with any species.- Winters are extremely cold, proper clothing would be a no-brainer.- Have a guide with you or make a well researched plan for yourself and only then embark on to your trip.- Do not hurt any species.- Do not leave your dorms at night to take a stroll alone, this might prove detrimental.
