Climbing a mountain is a big challenge for beginners because they do not have experience about it. However, it is risky not only for them but also for well-experienced climbers. That is why both beginners and experienced climbers are suggested to do several things before starting their journey.
The first thing to do is planning. It is related to the mountain track, whether it is long or not so long, easy or difficult. This knowledge about it is important to determine the things to bring to make a safe climbing. Next, we have to know the weather forecast to make an anticipation for certain weather situation like rain. When the weather forecast is not good for climbing, we can cancel it too. Third, we have to evaluate our own health to go climbing a mountain. In order to maintain our health, we can do some exercises. Fourth, it is important for us to have sufficient foods supply. Decide the best foods to bring, which consist of good nutrients for our body. Some examples of the foods to bring are nuts, wholemeal bread, and fruits. Also, we have to bring enough drink because the journey will be tiring. The next thing to have is sufficient equipment. Do not miss anything for keeping the journey safe and pleasant. It is crucial to have a pair of walking shoes that both comfortable and secure, especially for the joints. The clothing should also be comfortable because the trip will be exhausting and we will get sweating much. It is smart to have clothes that are breathable and light to make it more comfortable during the journey.
In addition, there are some things that we should do during the journey. First, we should walk at a regular pace. It means that we sould avoid walking in different pace, sometimes slow sometimes fast, because it will spend much energy and make us get tired easily. On the other hand, by having a regular pace walking, we will save our energy and prevent getting tired easily. Of course, we should provide some minutes to stop and to take a rest during the journey. This is when everyone can eat or drink to make them feel fresh again, especially when there are children in the group. The most important thing about the break-time is that we should not have it for too long. Just spend some minutes for the break so that we get enough time to get the energy back, but do not spend much time because we will get cooling down too much, which will make the next journey feels more difficult to do. It is important to keep on paying attention to the members that are weaker than the others because they may get tired or sick though it is still few miles away from the departure point. Ask them if they need more time to take a rest or whether they are sick. Always have the first aid kit with us so that we can help anyone who gets health problem during the journey, especially in term of emergency.
