Stunning peaks and lots of fresh air: the mountains are calling! Whether you're into strolling or hiking at a quick pace, step into your walking shoes and enjoy the great outdoors. To avoid aches and pains, it's crucial that you have the right gear.
First of all, invest in a lightweight backpack for storing your essentials. Pack only those things you will need for the duration of your hike.
The watchword? Hydration! Whether solo or with a group, make sure you have plenty of water to keep you hydrated during your walk. Likewise for food, such as granola bars to restore your energy while taking a well-earned break.
Protect yourself from the sun with sunscreen, a cap, and sunglasses. For a comfy hike, wear lightweight clothes. But remember to pack a warm garment if you'll be hiking at high altitude.
Finally, suitable sports shoes (running or hiking) are a must to ensure you don't end up with blistered feet. Now you're ready to scale the nearest peak!
