Jungle photography is quite tricky and make no mistake here, you will be taking pictures in the jungle, especially in the camps and near the swimming holes. Actually, these areas will be some of the most scenic on the whole trek so don't get carried away when at them and just swim. Take the time to get some photos of it all. To do this properly, you'll want a tripod. The low light conditions mean you'll need bigger apertures which can lead to some shaky photos if you are not mounted. Though carrying a tripod is a hassle on a trek, you'll be glad you have it for these type photos. Play with shutter speed and you can get some nice shots of waterfalls or even babbling brooks too.
