For the second part of the article, we will discuss about six other tips which will help you be prepared even more for that awesome climb that you have been planning about.
So check on the following tips for that great trekking adventure:
1. Let there be light. You can never be sure that when you climb up during day time, your way will be bright enough. With the many trees and boulders, there is a chance that your path will be dark. Also, you will surely still be there even during nighttime. With this situation, you need to bring with you some flashlights or headlamps. These are important trekking gear. Do not forget that.
2. A first aid kit in your things is also a must. When you are outdoors for mountain climbing, there is a risk of getting into accidents and suffer from cuts and bruises. Include in your first aid kit adhesive bandage and tape, antibiotic ointment, pain killers, and a small bottle of hydrogen peroxide or iodine antiseptic.
3. Avoid getting dehydrated, so bring enough water. When you are trekking towards the summit of a mountain, getting thirsty is certainly an inevitable occurrence. Therefore, you need to bring with you plenty of water.
4. Have your savior at hand – duct tape! It has always been an advise by experts that a roll of duct tape can be your best friend as it helps you save anything that is broken. For instance, if it was an extra windy night and a portion of your tent got torn, just get a duct tape and seal the damaged with it. Viola! Your tent is fixed.
5. Enjoy the climb. Trekking is not all about conquering the peak of a mountain. It is also about enjoying every site and sound that you encounter on your way up. Thus, you need to enjoy the scenery and the flora and fauna that you get to see as you move your feet and butt towards the top.
6. Be a responsible climber. Whatever it is that you bring with you in going up, you need to bring them back to where you came from. This means that everything, including your trash, must not be left up there.
Enjoy your mountain climbing experience!
