  • Please walk (really) slowly for the first 30 minutes
  • Take a rest in good time (at least a ten-minute rest every two hours)
  • Drink and eat enough during the tour
  • Never leave the marked trail
  • Correct assessment of fitness (especially when accompanied by children)
  • In case of an emergency, stay calm and call mountain rescue.
