- This area is infamous for the leeches present here. It might be a good idea to carry some salt with you to fend off leeches. Also, please carry umbrellas and raincoats during the rainy season. In case you are planning to trek, do carry some sweatshirt or warm clothes along, as it might be a little breezy out there.
