Many have popped questions on suitable shoes to wear when going for a jungle trekking in Malaysia.
For me, it is advisable to have two or three pairs for different terrain:-
1) muddy trails, river crossing, or steep terrain - wear Kg Adidas with rubber studs.
2) long walk on road, dusty or rocky trail- use boots/ high cut shoes or waterproof shoes.
3) Offroad shoes (usually non waterporoof) - this is cheaper and lighter alternative for item 2.
1) Mount Kinabalu
2) G. Datuk
Kg adidas causes leg cramp if worn on rocky trails. Advisable to wear thick sole shoes, especially when descending downhill.
3) Mt Rinjani, Mt Agung
Wear high cut boots! Those are dusty area, and requires long walk.
