Mountain excursions require specific clothing and equipment. Even on relatively short and easy outings, it is always better to be well equipped to avoid unpleasant surprises and to face unexpected events such as a sudden storm or a drop in energy.

What to bring for a trekking in the mountains?

In your backpack (for a daily excursion a 25 / 30L is usually recommended) it is good to bring:

water bottle (1L)
snacks (for example, dried fruit or chocolate)
first aid kit
windproof jacket
a fleece shirt
spare t-shirt and socks (possibly closed in a plastic bag)
wear or at least carry in your backpack a pair of long pants
bonnet
sunscreen
Sun glasses
gloves
whistle to be tracked in an emergency
Emergency telephone number Alpine Rescue 112.

Also wear footwear suitable for the route and the season. The walking surface of the paths can be irregular or bumpy and a pair of boots will protect you from distortions. A grassy slope, a rock slab or a steep path, if wet, can become dangerous without suitable footwear.

Finally … don’t forget your camera! It will be used to immortalize the excursion and the countless breathtaking views that are hidden at every corner. And if you want to share your memories with us, you can use the hashtag #borgoditortorella
