  4. As the activity’s duration is very long and the latest time to start is around 2-3pm, so it’s best to start as early as possible. Do bring extra batteries and memory cards! 
  5. Bring a sports camera! You might not want to miss capturing the moment when you take your biggest courage to jump 40ft high of a cliff with truly beautiful scenery. 
  6. Follow and do exactly what your experienced guide say, like how to jump and which area to avoid, etc. 
  7. Don’t hesitate when you are about to jump, you might get hurt by slipping down from the cliff. 
  8. Keep your body straight when do cliff jumping so you will not get hurt when you hit the water. 
  9. Water droplets and mist are you perfect photo killer! Be sure to have an anti-droplet solution for your lens! 
  10. Bring some cash to buy some BBQ snacks at the halfway of Canyoneering, if you would like to.
