When hiking, there are a few things you can do to make your experience safer and more enjoyable. Walking poles (even on roads) improve balance in icy conditions, crampons provide grip, and regular hydration is essential.

Carry a water bottle and snacks to keep your energy up. Protect yourself from the sun with sunscreen and sunglasses. Don't forget binoculars to add a touch of observation to your adventure.
Finally, check weather conditions and avalanche risks before you set off. Inform someone of your itinerary, as communication may be limited. These small adjustments will help you make the most of your getaway.
