If you are planning to engage in mountaineering, we tell you essential tips before climbing high peaks.
Dehydration, however mild, combined with height, can result in severe headaches, vomiting, and even fainting. Thirst is the signal your neurons send when they already detect dehydration in the body. You never have to get to that point on the mountain because it may be too late.
The recommended amount per person is four liters onwards. You can start your trip with this booking, or make sure the conditions of the place and know what resources you will have once you start the odyssey. It is important to note that melted snow or glacier streams do not moisturize.
Water is gaining salts and minerals during its journey, in contact with rocks and earth. If the liquid lacks them, the body removes it directly. You can carry in your backpack hydration salt sachets, sold in pharmacies and gyms, to add to melted snow.
One step for each terrain
You can find different surfaces, and each of them involves a different way of walking to avoid accidents or increased physical wear.
Another fundamental fact is that you should never support the toe first and then the heel because the cufflinks have little resistance. It is better to first support the heel or foot completely.
Descent is more dangerous than ascent. Approximately 80% of accidents occur on the descent, so much more attention should be paid in this case. During a thunderstorm, you need to turn off all your electronics, such as cell phones and radios, and remove all the metal elements that hang from your backpack. Avoid any elevation, or stand near walls and tall trees.
