Preparation for Trekking Plan properly before going on an adventure tour


Trekking is like an addiction for adventure lovers. People who love to travel rush to trek to discover themselves in solitude, attracted by the beauty of trails-mountains-waterfalls and taking a break from the noise of the locality. Trekking means climbing the inaccessible mountains in search of a spring, treading the path of the forest, moving forward along the sometimes muddy sloping road, and walking on the slippery path of the spring, in a word, trekking is an adventurous and risky activity. For those who are going for trekking, along with courage and willingness, preparation is very important. Today’s event is about what new trekkers should take care of as a pre-preparation for trekking. Let’s find out.

Why pre-preparation for trekking is necessary?

Wherever you go trekking, there is no possibility of finding anything useful at hand and there is no guarantee of getting help from anyone other than yourself in case of danger. That place can be completely uninhabited. Again many times you will not get phone network. In the wild, you have to adapt to new situations every moment. Trekking can be for a few hours or even for a few days. If you don’t take the necessary preparations, your adventure can come in the way at any time and a little carelessness can lead to a big accident. So plan ahead, pack essentials and prepare yourself mentally.

What things must be taken care of?

1) Physical ability

Physical fitness is a prerequisite for trekking. If the health of the heart and lungs is not good, there is a possibility of getting sick on the journey. If you have a physical illness, please get permission from your doctor. If there will be a problem in cold or altitude, then what to do, you have to know all that. If you decide to go trekking, practice walking and climbing stairs at least a month in advance. Also free the body by free hand exercise. It is important to exercise to increase leg strength.

For those who have never exercised, the physical preparation phase may seem a bit difficult. But if you go trekking without being fully fit, not only you will be in danger, but everyone in the group will be embarrassed with you. And those who have such problems as fear of heights, asthma or breathing problems, anemia, joint pain, low pressure, it is better not to go trekking in the mountains.

2) Backpack selection

Trekking really comes to mind when an adventurer climbs a mountain with a big backpack on his shoulder. Trekking preparation is incomplete without a backpack. As a pre-trekking preparation for those who are thinking of buying a bag, one thing to note is that the more straps there are in the bag, the more the weight of the bag can be distributed across the body. Overall weight will be less. Spreading the weight around the waist reduces the pressure on the shoulders and makes walking easier. If there are more chambers or pockets, you can keep the necessary things separately. Remember, the lighter your bag, the easier you can walk.

3) Take care of clothes too

It is important to take care that the clothes do not get in the way of trekking. Choose clothes that will dry quickly when wet or sweaty. Light colors absorb less sun so it is better to wear light colored cotton clothes. Comfortable three-quarter sports pants or trousers, jacket, t-shirt, full sleeve genji are preferred by trekkers. Don’t forget to take towels or thin towels. Clothing varies by place, time and season so keep these in mind.

Shoes with grip are best for trekking. Walking around the market, you will find trekking shoes or boots. There is a risk of slipping on hilly roads, so if the shoe has good ankle and arch support and grip, that fear is no more. Carry a pair of sandals that you can use other than trekking.

5) Take dry food with you

Pack dry foods that are quick to energize and easily digestible. Jaggery, muri, chocolate, dates, oat bars, mango bars, cookies, nuts can be very good options. Don’t forget to take glucose and saline. The source of drinking water should be known in advance. If you plan to trek for more than one day, you should take cakes, biscuits as well as other food. You can make tea, instant noodles or soup if you take a lighter and a small stove.

6) Must carry first aid box

It is very important to carry a first aid box to deal with minor accidents during trekking or to provide immediate treatment in case of sudden illness. Pack anti septic cream, essential medicines, mosquito repellent odomes, scissors, bandages before the tour. Keep salt with you in case of leeches on the trekking route.
