JEST Camp, Subic, Philippines

Jungle Environment Survival Training (JEST) Camp, showcases the skills and knowledge of the aetas in the Jungle. Here, tourists are trained to make a fire without a match or a a lighter using just dried bamboo sticks and cook food without utensils. They have also identified a plant species (I think it also belongs to bamboo) which can provide clean drinking water and it has been tested for purity and safety. I also had an experience to have a taste of it and it was really cool and tasty, better than bottled water. Travelers also have an option to experience the jungle and hike or may be camp and learn survival skills and techniques.
