You may have this passion to go for the toughest trek ever, but it is best to keep it simple and easy in the beginning. As a beginner, you must pick an easy trek rather than going for treks that are meant for expert trekkers. With an easy trek, you will be able to have a better experience and know your capabilities too. Choosing a tough trek may bring a lot of challenges for you and you may ruin your first-ever experience.

Train Yourself

After you have picked a trek for yourself, start prepping for it. Go for walks and workout harder to boost your stamina. You can walk up and down the stairs to add strength to your calves. You can also indulge in activities like cycling and swimming that add to your stamina.

Stay Fit

When you start trekking, your body goes through many challenges like weather change, air pressure, terrain change, etc. Prepare yourself to adjust with the changes. You can take cold showers in order to save yourself from any effects of the cold weather. If you have any medical concerns, check with your doctor beforehand to ensure that there are no issues while you are out there to trek. Completely cut down on your alcohol and smoke consumption. Make sure you eat healthy and keep yourself hydrated.

Pack Light and Right

You would require a lot of stuff while you are out for your trek. Make a list of all the essentials that you would need for your trek. This should include your warm clothes, shoes, undergarments, torch, personal medical kit, water bottle, toilet kit among others. Don't add extra stuff as it will only add to your burden.

Do Some Good Research
