Essentials to pack for a day hike

Whether it is summer or winter, the weather in the mountains is always a little unpredictable, therefore you need to properly prepare yourself:

  • A rain coat with a warm / fleece lining.
  • A sun hat and sunscreen.
  • Trekking shoes with good ankle support and grip.
  • Drinking water.
  • Snacks such as dried fruit, nuts, chocolate, energy bars – light to carry and packed with energy.
  • A bikini during the summer time as there are plenty of freshwater streams and pools to cool off in.
