explore now

Start with Easy paths

 Pick beginner-friendly paths that match your fitness and experience. For confidence and stamina, use shorter, well-marked trails with low elevation rise.

Research and Plan

Know your trail before you go. Find trail maps, mileage, elevation, weather predictions, and any rules or permits. Hike appropriately.

Wear Proper Gear

Buy hiking boots or strong athletic shoes. Layer for shifting weather. Comfortable clothing is moisture-wicking and breathable. Wear sunblock, a hat, and sunglasses.

Pack Essential Supplies

Carry water, food, a trail map, a compass or GPS device, a whistle, a first aid kit, a multi-tool or knife,  spare clothing, and a rain jacket in a backpack etc


Start Early and Pace Yourself

Allow enough time and daylight to hike. Take breaks and pace yourself. As your fitness increases trek longer and harder.

Hydrate and Fuel Up

Even when not thirsty, drink water. Refill your water bottle or bladder at trailside water sources. Trail mix, granola bars, or fruit for hiking.

Leave No Trace

Honor Nature. Take out all rubbish, including food wrappers and biodegradable objects. Avoid hurting vegetation and wildlife by staying on paths. Leave natural and historical things.

Hike with a Buddy or Share Your Plan

If hiking alone, tell someone your aims. Your trekking route, return time, and emergency contacts. Check in.

Emergency Preparedness

Carry and utilize a first aid kit. Learn trekking first aid for sprains, blisters, and heat exhaustion. Learn emergency protocols.
