Additionally, consider carrying waterproof bags or covers for your electronic devices and important documents to prevent water damage.
  • Stay updated on weather forecasts : Stay informed about the weather conditions in the areas you plan to visit. Keep a close eye on weather forecasts and plan your activities accordingly. Avoid venturing into areas that are prone to landslides or flash floods. Stay updated on any road closures or transportation disruptions caused by heavy rainfall.
