If you are going to hike in mountainous areas, bring some special walking boots. If you do not wear the right footwear you can tire very easy and leave the road very soon. Don’t forget to load with water to stay hydrated and a snack like energy bars, fruit, or cookies.
2. Prepare the camera

3. Check the weather before you leave
The weather can always give you a terrible surprise on your trip, so don’t forget to check all weather information before leaving home.
4. Be respectful of the environment
Remember that we must take care of what belongs to everyone. Carry a bag to deposit your trash, don’s set fire, and be careful with the animals of the place.

The more people who accompany you, the more fun your trip will be. Share this activity with your family or friends and spend an incredible day outdoors.
