1. Be careful not to travel alone; you never know
what may happen. Don't rely solely on mobile phones as
coverage may not be good, the battery may run down or you
may not be able to use them. We recommend telling your
acquaintances or the hotel reception staff which trail you
plan on taking.
2. Be well informed about the degree of difficulty,
distance and terrain of the trail you choose. We recommend
hiking a trail accompanied by someone who has taken it
before. Take the hours of daylight into consideration.
3. Wear clothing suited to the time of year. Bring a spare
set of clothing, which will come in handy to replace
sweaty clothing or for additional warmth if the weather
gets chilly. When weather is changeable, bring a
waterproof cape or raincoat.
4. Wearing suitable and comfortable footwear is very
important. Several different types of footwear are sold
according to the type of terrain; select the most
suitable. Never wear normal street shoes.
5. Bring some type of light in case night falls; a torch,
flashlight or gaslight.
6. Walk on the left side if you must walk on a road and
wear reflective clothing.
7. Bring extra food and drink. High-energy food such as
chocolate, dried fruit and bananas are recommended. Water
is very important, especially in summer. Do not rely on
the springs you find along the way on an excursion; they
may be dry or contain water not suitable for drinking. Do
not drink from water reservoirs as they may contain

10. Respect the flora and fauna along the way. Close the
doors or gates you pass through behind you. If trespassing

fire, which is not allowed in most areas, especially in
spring and summer.
