    How to Make your own Leech Socks

    by bpacker Updated May 9, 2006

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Clothing/Shoes/Weather Gear: Now, if you're wondering why I'm asking you to wear Christmas stockings in Endau Rompin, wonder no more. These socks are actually leech socks and they'll prevent you from getting bloody leech bites in the wild. You can buy them at $6 a pair from the Singapore Botanical Gardens shop ( See Website ) or make your own. Muddybok taught me how to make these after he read my leechy bite stories in Endau Rompin . The instructions are fairly simple:

    - Get a pair of old canvas pants and trim them at the knee level where the pants bend. Sew across. At the part where the the pants fold, stitch the folds and thread a string through them. The string will fasten your sock at the knee level.

    See the picture for Bok's sock. It comes complete with elephant crap! He has a tip on how to make leech socks too. Click here to take a look at it.

    Essentials for Endau Rompin

    by bpacker Updated Apr 24, 2006

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Luggage and bags: Bring a sturdy haversack with a rain cover. The new Deuteur has an attached rain cover at the base and it comes in really handy when you caught in a sudden rainfall. Well, they don't call a RAINforest a Rainforest for nothing right? On top of that protect your clothing packed inside in a garbage bag. You wouldn't want to sleep wet clothes, would you?

    Clothing/Shoes/Weather Gear: Shoes - Trekking Boots/Shoes
    Pants - Cargo pants made of canvas are the best. They protect you from leech bites and scratches from tree branches
    Tops - Anything made of beathable cotton.
    Swimming Gear - Lots of swimming holes here! Bring your swim suit.
    Sweater - It gets surprisingly chilly here so bring a light sweater to wear at night.
    Bandanas - Useful for sweat absorption

    Toiletries and Medical Supplies: No need to bring toilet paper if you're staying at Lubuk Tapah Camp.
    Panadol Cold Tablets are cold for sudden sneezes.

    Photo Equipment: Protect your camera equipment with ziplock bags or dive camera casing.
    A pair of binos for bird watching.
    A macro lens for taking closeups.

    Camping/Beach/Outdoor Gear: Sleeping bags are a must here. There are only wooden planks in the chalets.

    Miscellaneous: Axe Oil ( or any other medicated oil) for leech bites.
    Water Bottles and Energy Bars for Trekking
    Leech Socks - I didn't know what these were till I went to Endau Rompin! Arrgh big mistake. Fortunately, Muddybok taught me how to make this for my next trip. Read the next tip!
