Equipment. The tent should be suitable for the number of people going and weather conditions. Take a warm sleeping bag because the temperature is much lower at night. Don't forget to bring a tourist mat. It will provide comfort during sleep and also protect you from cold and hard ground.

Give preference to mountaineering backpacks. They are made of high-strength materials that are highly resistant to punctures and tears. They also have a specially designed load-bearing system to distribute the weight evenly. Also, don't forget about a raincoat, a hat, and waterproof shoes.

Take a first aid kit with the necessary medicines and enough food. The food should be easy to digest. For example, energy bars, nuts, dried fruits, snacks, dry soups and cereals.

You will also need utensils, a pot and a burner. A map,a compass, and a GPS navigator will also come in handy. Before you set off, let your family know where you are going and when you are expected to return.
