Hiking in upper parts of mountains might be dangerous or cause death. The weather may change quickly and dramatically. Hikers are strongly advised to:
- be prepared for blizzard, heavy rain, fog, strong wind and low temperature,
- inform the staff at mountain lodge about the itinerary,
- carry enough food supplies,
- have a detailed map, compass or GPS.
However, inexperienced hikers are advised to choose valleys instead. Mountain lodges offer both cold and warm meals, drinks, sleeping and relaxing facilities and professional guidance.
