Hiking tours etiquette/ directions
1. No loud music because it disturbs the fauna.
2. Leave no traces and take back all the wrappers and other waste with you and respect nature.
3. Observe but do not touch any cultural or historic structures and artefacts.
4. Leave everything (natural) as you find them.
5. Respect other visitors and maintain the quality of their experience.
6. Its mandatory to look down while hiking but its equally important to stop and look up to find wonders.
7. Avoid using earphones/ headphones as it might hinder your concentration on a walk/hike. The dry pine needles in Pine Forest makes it slippery
8. Cut/ trim your toe nails before the hike otherwise there will be lot of discomfort while going down the hill.
9. My time is very precious and I’m sure yours is too. Please make it a point to reach on the decided time. Since you are in a place new to you, try to start little ahead of your scheduled time to avoid any delays.
Punctuality is not about being on time, its basically respecting your own commitments.
Essentials for the Walking Tours/ Nature Walks
1. Charged phone or Camera so that you click some unforgettable memories.
2. Water bottle. It’s an absolute must while hiking keep yourself hydrated and energetic.
*My personal favorite is steel or bamboo bottle. Try not to use plastic bottles.
3. Snacks : Hiking snacks is a personal preference and pack according to length and difficulty of trail.
*Vanita’s favorites are fruits, nuts, berries, seeds, dark chocolate, fresh bread with cheese, butter or jam.
4. Good walking shoes according to comfort and socks that fit correctly and comfortable to wear for a long time. So, try wearing cotton socks because they are least smelly.
*My personal favorite are waterproof with ankle support.
5. Hiking bottom : Tights, lower with pockets or converting pants.
*Her personal favorite is anything but full length so as to save yourself from thorny bushes and insect bites.
6. Raincoat/ Rain jacket/ poncho on rainy days. It must be light weight to keep you dry in downpour. Also they prevent insect bites.
7. Sunglasses : a must to enjoy hike on a sunny day
8. Hat/Cap/Visor to protect you from sun on a trail.
*To keep hair out of face, I recommend headband which you can always use as a mask in case you have forgotten one.
9. Sun protection cream because sun during the months of May, June can be harsh during Kasauli Nature Walks.
10. Trekking pole if you are going for a longer hike and terrain is unsteady.
