comment Climbing Mount Teide from sea-level
@Unsung: true, But i didn't mean to say what you interpreted. I meant, a lot of people, really so many of them have died while coming down from a peak after a successful summit attempt, just out of over-confidence, excitement and Needless Hurry

comment Do leeches have a preference?
@Unsung: Bingo! I always knew this will the point to be raised. See mate, when we trek in humid areas, (for an ideal example for which the weather and jungle part you can imagine: Jaigad in Konkan, if you have trekked), we normally sweat. The more humid is the weather, the more we sweat. This sweat part is Heat for us, leeches see it as wet. And when they actually come in contact with our skin, the head towards the heat. Had the leeches being targeting either the heat or wet, then cattles would never get leeches on them, yet they do!

One thing, I've heard and learnt in high altitude mountaineering: Its not only about climb to the summit. Its also about getting down!

comment Is it really that unsafe to touch a stranger's wound?
Looks like an answer to me. I still like to add regarding how unsafe it is to touch/keep pressure on open wounds. Putting excessive pressure on open wounds with Bone/Muscle/Ligament injury can further damage the wound apart from bleeding.

comment Trekking solo in Western Ghats, India
@Josh: You have not listed "Local Language barrier" here as you have in the question related to Cape Town trek. Does this imply that you are well with the local language Kannada ?? I had a tough time with language over there.
