Executive Chronicles | Adventure day out- hill edition | It’s always fun to get out for a getaway with the family or friends and try to rejuvenate back into the usual selves. Speaking of rejuvenation, there is nothing better than the fresh air of hills and what it has to offer for one and all. The hills of Australia are a different view in itself. A day out in the mountains allows one to explore a lot in chilling or doing something dating, such as paragliding. This guide is a detailed guide summing up all the pointers on the things required for an adventure day, specifying the hills. 

Get the right pair of shoes: 

Wearing comfortable shoes throughout the journey is probably the most vital thing that’ll enable one to fully be able to stay active and enjoy the trip, rough roads, and run and climb paths. Nobody wants to be stuck on a hill/ mountain wearing sandals or stilettos to look fancy while their companions are out there participating in activities like paragliding, setting up tents, and lighting a bonfire. Running shoes or right sneakers would do good to a person travelling in the hills. 

Stock up on water and glucose: 

Carrying an extra bottle of water and stocking up on some munchies or glucose is very important, mainly because climbing up the hills usually drains much energy. The higher the mountain, the lower the oxygen levels, making the person more prone to being more tired. The glucose shots could be taken directly (as per convenience ) or mixed with water before the trip. 

Carry a hiking bag: 

Nobody should strain their shoulders by carrying an ordinary bag and dumping all of their necessities in them. A hiking bag is specifically designed for hilly destinations where the donor pulls the individual with a lot of weight as the altitude increases. These types of bags could be available online or in certain activewear stores. Hiking backpacks are spacious, which means an individual could carry all their necessities in just one sack and not have to worry about putting their phone or water bottle in different packets or purses, as they all have separate compartments inside and outside the bag. 

Carry a torch, a safety knife and a compass: 

As cliche as these may sound, this article cannot stress enough the necessities of these. When one intends to stay on a hill (with a group or alone) past evening or till the next consecutive day, a torch would come in handy, especially during emergencies of someone’s phone being dead and being stuck in a jungle-like area with the chances of being bitten by an Australian spider. There have been cases of thefts and robbery for many individuals travelling in a group or solo, especially in hilly areas. If it comes to the situation where one is getting robbed and threatened, while the lack of a network prohibits access to call the police, the best way to protect oneself is to carry a safety knife that would lower the chances of anything horrible happening. Lastly, due to the lack of network and mobile data in a hilly area, google maps.

And navigations are harder to access, making the old. Still, a gold compass comes in handy, enabling individuals to view a physical hard copy map and reach their desired destination with the help of the compass. 

Keep warm: 

Carrying warm sweaters and jackets in addition to raincoats can forestall the chances of a person freezing to sleep when the climate starts to get nasty. Everyone is aware that hills are naturally cold, and some may handle the chilliness quite well while the rest may not, which is why it’s always a must to carry sweaters and woollen jackets when going to a hilly destination. Moreover, there are higher chances for unexpected rainfalls and storms occurring at a hill which is why people who plan on going trekking or hiking at a mountain should always stock up on safety raincoats, which would not only keep them dry but also save them from the icy cold rain. 

Try to travel with a group as much as possible: 

It’s always best to travel with other people, especially if someone travels to a hill for the first time or has no experience with it. Travelling solo is always fun, but one should always keep their safety as their top priority. A beginner traveller is not very well aware of the routes and not experienced enough to face all the circumstances when things take a turn at their trip, which is why people should always tag along with a group until they’re very familiar and well aware of the routes and the possibilities of situations occurring.
