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, or 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. This is a simple hack that has again helped you save your weight on a trek.

3. Wear a Sun Cap that has Flaps

Wearing a Sun Cap with flaps has stopped your 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. There is so much difference in trek efficiency between two trek poles and one, that you cannot sing enough about it.

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.

As you repeat this step, ensure you do not allow your breathing to rise above ‘slightly more than normal’. If you notice your breathing picking up, reduce the pace of your micro-step even further.
