In this post we’ll talk a bit about the things you need to know if you are going hiking in the mountains (for example the Alps, or the Welsh mountains), especially if it is your first time to the mountains!
Take it easy!
If you are a beginner, begin easy with a well marked tour, alpine huts on the way so you can always take a good rest, and don’t hike more than 2 – 3 hours. There are a lot of great and easy mountains to climb and places to visit in the mountains in every region, you won’t get bored. You’ll see, you will enjoy mountain hiking and climbing. That might be a cliché, I know, but it’s true. I just used my own experience. I started hiking small tours and built it up year by year. Year after year we climbed higher mountains and made even longer tours (up to 10 hours a day!). In the Hiking sections of each Country you’ll find nice routes for ‘beginners’.
