What you need to know before hiking
The Carpathian Mountains always give rest, health and joy of communication with nature. However, for those who ignore the rules of conduct in the mountainous area, a trip to the Carpathians can leave sad memories, and even turn into a tragedy. To avoid that, before setting off tourists have to:
- read weather forecast for the next few days;
- execute relevant documents: a route list, a route book, a pass for staying in the Carpathian National Nature Park, emergency rescue service permit;
- check the availability and quality of equipment, completeness of the first aid kit.
Remember that it is strictly prohibited to:
- head for the route under very unfavorable conditions (heavy fog, rain, low air temperature)
- ascent or descent taking the shortcut, through narrow gorges, steep snowy slopes, which can lead to avalanches and injuries;
- go hiking not accompanied by a qualified tourist guide.
