Going to a hill station to a holiday? How about exploring a trekking site apart from the regular markets and bylanes of the town. Do as much research as you can about the trekking place you have chosen. Avoid going in a group with too much variety of fitness and ability, as that can compromise on everyone’s enjoyment.
Try having a trekking partner who’s done a first aid course, else learn some basics: how to bandage a wound, how to recognise signs of dehydration and hypothermia, and how to deal with heatstroke. Don’t compromise on the trekking equipment like; boots, bags, knife etc.
