CHOOSE THE CORRECT ROUTE ...FOR YOU!
Following friends' advice, why not, but be careful, check that your friends' fitness is similar to yours or you may find yourself in difficulty.~
- Before leaving, carefully assess the difficulty of the route, looking at the distance to be covered, the steepness, the altitude, any difficult passages.~
- Also check their difficulty to hike at your level.~
- Similarly, plan breaks, refuges, halts etc... where you can stay a few hours or the night depending on what you need.~
By anticipating their location on your route, you will be able to better manage your effort.
- Are you hiking with children? Do not overlook the fact that until adolescence, children have trouble managing their effort. They are therefore likely to tire quickly and to be less cooperative on the way back. Make sure that they have regular breaks and adapt the duration of the hike to the youngest.
