Few months back, a trekker from Mumbai died in a trekking accident. So, through this blog I intend to offer some of the most effective safety tips for trekkers.
Trekking is an exhilarating activity. So, make sure you are fit enough to join a trekking club. A trekker should have a strong heart, spine, legs, arms, shoulders etc. People with epilepsy, renal ailments, heart conditions and arthritis should avoid such trails. Set goals that are achievable and never try something that is too risky.
Prepare for the trek
I have met many trekkers who are overconfident and consider themselves as superior. These trekkers don’t take training seriously. Such an approach can make their skills rusty. So, i always advise that if you are planning a trek, start training a few months before and get in better shape.
If you like to explore new locations during your trekking expedition, make sure you are moving forward on a safe path that is strong and sturdy and will not collapse.
Leave a note
Always make sure that you notify your family and friends where you are going and with whom. This approach will help you out if there is an accident.
So these were some tips that could help you trek safely.
