While we travel in the mountains the best option to explore a place and enjoy its beauty is by foot, be it a short uphill climb or a thrilling trek through the thick wooded forests flanked by mountains. For a regular trekker it might be a very easy one but for most travellers it becomes too challenging even to walk a flight of uphill steps. Here are some travel tips to make your trail a comfortable and exciting one.

  • Never eat too much in breakfast before your trek
  • Instead have a light protein rich meal and avoid oily food if any
  • Carry some biscuits, chocolates and dry fruits along with water with you
  • Never smoke or drink alcohol while you are trekking, which may be dangerous at times
  • Wear a totally covered water proof trekking boot(leeches may be there in the jungle so beware and you may need to cross a hilly brook)
  • Wear comfortable clothings but nothing draping from your body
  • Carry a polythene sheet so that you can lie down in some green meadows in between your walk and have some rest
  • Don’t run while you are descending,otherwise you may lose body balance and topple
  • Wear a hat or any head wrap to beat the scorching sun ( the sun rays are very intense in the mountains)
  • Keep silent while walking.This will help you in breathing and also to absorb the charming rustic essence of the surroundings
  • If possible carry a stick( a thick tree brunch is enough)which may be of help in your ascend and also to defend yourself from any unwanted things in your way
  • You may take help of any local people to guide you through the unknown path
  • Dont forget to take your regular medicines( if any) before the start
  • To take a snap on your way stop, take a deep breath and then click for the picture, never be hasty
