What to bring?
Although the Terai can be cool during the winter, It can be stiflingly hot during the summer months. If you are headed there in winter, bring along a sweater or jacket. Summer months require cool clothes, good walking shoes, shady hat and sunscreen, Make sure your clothes are in colors-like brown and green-that help you blend into the background.
Carry along some mosquito repellant, anti-diarrhea tablets and antihistamines. Meanwhile, along with photo equipment, a pair of binoculars will prove invaluable. If you are closer to the monsoon months, carry some waterproof jackets and an extra pair of shoes. Just in case.
The Terai jungles are also famous for leeches that appear in the monsoon and are around for a few months after, Salt or a lighted cigarette will make them fall off, do not pull them off as the wound may get infected. Try an insect repellent to keep them away.
