National Parks disseminates rules for the safety of tourists in their protected areas

The NPA disseminated a number of councils and standards to be complied with in the areas under its responsibility.


The registration of access to wild areas and a previous study of the place and weather forecast are some of the recommendations of the National Parks Administration (APN) for tourists visiting their nature reserves this summer, especially on adventure journeys.
The APN disseminated a number of tips and standards to be complied with in its areas, many of which are home to important tourist attractions or are complemented by destinations that have already begun to receive thousands of summer visitors.

Required registration

One of the most important recommendations is to respect the free and mandatory registration, before and at the end of a cruise, which allows to warn if someone did not return from a walk and go on your search.
The natural environments of national parks also have signage and maintenance systems, as well as determined trails, according to international safety standards for different categories of walkers, to which it is necessary to adjust.
For those who choose to stay overnight in mountain shelters in the Andean parks, points out that these have their own dynamics of accommodation and load capacity, so it is advisable to make reservations before embarking on the ascent.

Respect indications

In all cases it is advisable to go with a guide and observe the indications of the park rangers and signage, since there are basic rules for hiking in rugged areas, beyond the degree of difficulty of each trail — which must also be taken into account — and the physical capacity and experience of the walkers.
Key data for the safety of hikers in the event of an emergency are disclosed in the reporting offices and visitor centers of the parks, so it is essential to have this information that allows the implementation of safety, relief and rescue protocols.

Schedule outputs

“All walks should be planned and it is advisable to do them in the company of someone, with appropriate clothing and equipment,” says the text, adding that “the weather forecast should also be taken into account, which is usually changing.”
In areas of rainfall and strong winds, trees and branches are common, which can cause the closure of trails in the wooded areas.

Be cautious

An injury or mild bodily discomfort, which in the urban area is soon resolved in a health center, in the wild areas can be complicated and requires special logistics and longer time to be solved.
In many wild areas there is no connectivity for cell phones, which should be seen by hikers and those engaged in nautical and water activities.
Many of the watercourses and mirrors of the National Parks are nestled in remote scenarios, outside the areas of cell phone coverage, which requires greater precautions.

Do not carry pet

Other most common recommendations for tourists are not to enter with pets; only make fire in enabled places; check the state of internal routes, roads and trails and weather forecast; and not affect the environment in any measure.
