The first time hiking in the mountains: tips

Hiking in the mountains for the first time is a great experience. And even though you are such a good walker in our flat country, suddenly walking uphill and downhill is a different matter altogether. Trekking has its own walking technique and concentration. Many people underestimate the dangers of mountain hiking. You should not think that during your very first hike in the mountains you end up on a difficult and steep path with deep gorges. Or that you discover halfway through the walk that you cannot go on anymore, because you are too tired or your feet no longer want? Therefore in this weblog 13 tips to ensure that your first time hiking in the mountains is a success.

# 1. Align your fitness level at home

If you want to go Trekking in Udaipur, Rajasthan it is nice if your basic condition is good. You can of course do this by exercising in the India, but you should definitely go for a long walk. If you manage to walk 2 to 4 hours at a nice pace in the India without any problems, then you will also come a long way in the Alps.

# 2. Plan your route (s) in advance

There are walking routes in various degrees of difficulty and distances. You can often prepare for this at home. Buy a hiking map of the region or check online for the possibilities. Start with a simple route that takes 1.5 to 3 hours, this is often sufficient for the first time. You will immediately notice how difficult or easy it is to go hiking.

# 3. Build the walk (s) calmly

Always start walking calmly and then possibly speed up your pace. This also applies to the different walks that you are going to take. Start with a simple route, if this feels right, then go one step further. Do not overestimate yourself in the mountains. It is better to walk an easy route too often than to suddenly find yourself on a hiking trail high in the mountains, where you do not feel certain. The same applies to distances; always walk an hour longer and see how it goes.

# 4. Follow it again

Preparing for a walk also includes viewing the weather forecast. Is there a chance of rain or thunder or is the sun shining all day? This knowledge ensures that you put on the right clothes and pack the things in your hiking backpack that you need anyway (extra (rain) clothing, sunscreen, sunglasses, etc).

# 5. Buy or borrow sturdy walking shoes

You really need a pair of sturdy hiking boots in the mountains. Often enough you see people walking on sneakers / sneakers with insufficient grip on the unpaved paths in the mountains. You only have to slip a little and you can already hurt yourself a lot. In addition, good hiking shoes give your ankles support and the grip ensures that you can walk confidently without being afraid of slides.
