5 mistakes that make a trekking trip a disaster (Part 2)

3. Being dominated by “the self”

The “self” is the one responsible for most serious altitude Sayings. A simple remedy for altitude sickness is “going down”. But the ego is what prevents people from deciding to go down.

It is observed that trekking people who want to quickly reach the first destination, to be considered healthy and physically fit, are often at risk of the effects and effects of motion sickness. We always advise first-time climbers: “Be the last to reach the campsite” during their acclimatization period. This means that you are not strenuous and go up faster than necessary.


4. Do not take care of your feet carefully

People who are new to trekking often have two foot problems.

– No testing and pre-testing of equipment: Climbing shoes and socks

Solution: Get on the trail whenever you can before your trip to test equipment, see how shoes and socks affect your feet on different distances and terrain. Are they too tight? Too small? Are hiking shoes rubbing when you go up or down? Are your toes poked up to the tip of the shoe? Make sure you test these early to allow time for equipment changes and refinements.

– No experience in protecting feet to handle when the feet are blistered, rubbed, irritated, moist, purple toenails.

Solution: Test your equipment to see how climbing shoes and hiking socks affect your feet. If you notice blistering, try different climbing socks and try a different shoe size to reduce the blistering effect. You can also use medical measures to prevent blistering. If moisture and irritation cause you to clean and dry your feet every night, use a method like talcum powder (the ingredient in talcum powder) to create a clean and dry environment for your feet.

5. No preference for hygiene

A lot of interesting trekking spots are in developing countries, and most of here, you don’t have ideal sanitation. If you are not familiar with wildlife, this may be a challenge for you. How to eat, personal hygiene, how to sleep, all activities related to activities in a normal day will be very new in nature.

The following article will point out 5 common mistakes, giving you more strength to make sure the trip becomes memorable of an adventure-changing life instead of a disaster vacation.

1. Not drinking enough water

In our experience, trekker and climber, dehydration or dehydration are the main causes of dizziness at high altitude rather than oxygen deficiency. People are aware that heights can kill you, heights can stop you from succeeding, but few people really pay attention to the amount of water they need and how their bodies are affected by the shortage.


The higher the altitude, the lower the air pressure, which increases the rate of evaporation through the skin, and the greater the rate of evaporation from the lungs, meaning that you lose water faster. In some cases, it is 2 to 4 times faster than standing at sea level.

Most people don’t feel thirsty at high altitudes even though they are really dehydrated, so it’s important to make a habit of drinking lots of water, other than water, which can be hot tea or drinks against dehydration.

Dehydration means you are tired and stressed, affecting your memory, thinking ability and response speed. Don’t make this mistake, drink enough water. Minimum of 3 to 4 liters at high altitude, can drink more depending on the condition and size of your body.

2. Did not equip themselves with the knowledge of altitude sickness

Understanding the impact of altitude (from over 3,000 meters) on your body is not the responsibility of anyone other than yourself. There is no magic drug that can prevent this, no special training regime or a device can eliminate the risk, the only thing you can do is become more knowledgeable about The risks can be encountered, the changes may be happening to your body and what you can do with them when they appear. Read the article Things to know about altitude sickness.

It should be noted that the height affects the level of oxygen in the body, so you need to learn to be aware of breathing and active breathing, purposeful both when active and when resting in a well huge.
