AquaMira has now become one of the water treatment
methods used by trekkers on the trails in Asia. It
is being used on the trails of Nepal, for instance.
The water coming out of the Himalayas is generally
pretty pure. There is so much of it pouring off the
world's biggest mountains that any giardia or other
organisms present tend to be diluted. At least, that
is the case in the more remote areas. As one gets
closer to villages, the risk becomes greater. Still,
purifying the water with AquaMira or other water purifiers
is easy, so it's best to do it all the time just to
be on the safe side. Buy AquaMira
the more settled areas of Asia the odds of getting
bad water increases dramatically. In fact, whereas
I regularly risk things in the countryside, I would
never even think about drinking untreated tap water
in a Third World Asian city.
For that, AquaMira is a good choice. Not only can
you have fairly tasteless water, but it is very effective
at killing any critter that is in the water, even
The best method is to keep a few liters of water available.
Whenever you finish off a liter, refill it with water
and then treat it with AquaMira. That way you'll always
have a couple fresh liters available. And of course,
drink lots of tea. You don't need AquaMira or any
other water purificatio in in it if it has been boiled.
- the old standby.
