Expert Trekking Tips You Must Know:

1. Always Carry a Clothesline and Clips

This never strikes anyone, but this simple hack has saved me time and time again. A clothesline helps you to dry out your clothes anywhere. You can tie them on branches, on trek poles, even inside your tent.

On a trek, it is inevitable that your clothes get wet. Most of it is sweat. All you have to do is to dry them out. The fastest way to dry out clothes is to let the wind and air take care of them. You don’t really need a sunny day. A couple of hours out in the open takes care of most drying.

2. Convert Your Shoes into Sandals — Carry Less Weight

You can avoid carrying sandals/slippers if you convert your shoes into slip-on's when not trekking.

3. Wear a Sun Cap that has Flaps

Wearing a Sun Cap with flaps has stopped sunburns by almost 80%.

4. Always Trek with Two Trekking Poles

Use two trek poles instead of one — one of the trekking tips most often ignored.

5. Use Micro-Steps While Climbing Uphill

Use micro-steps for uphill climbs. It is a deliberate step so it takes time to get the hang of it. Once you do, then you will never tire on an uphill climb.

How do you do it? When you put one foot in front of the other, keep only a 2-inch gap between the heel of the front leg and the toe of the back. When the back leg has to move forward, repeat the step. Keep a distance of only 2 inches between the heel of the front leg and the toe of the back.

6. Use Betadine Solution to Purify Water

All you need to do is add 4 drops to one liter of water. Rest the water for half an hour. It kills most germs. Betadine's solution is the cheapest and the easiest way to get clean water. Make it a practice.

7. Do Not Wear Cotton Clothes on a Trek

Finally — one of the major trekking tips — don’t wear cotton on a trek. Anything. Not t-shirts, not socks, not vests. Cotton absorbs too much sweat/water and releases too little of it. It keeps the water to itself leaving you cold and miserable. A slightly wet socks pass on the wetness to the shoes. So now over a period of time, your inner shoe becomes wet (you can’t see it). The shoe causes blisters, starts to stink and your feet feel sore. These are very microscopic wetness that you cannot feel with your fingers.

A wet cotton undergarment makes your core body temperature drop rapidly.
