Good preparation is never out of place
As a general rule every hiker who is light on his/her feet can roam the mountain world. Prerequisite: You need to know your own personal fitness level boundaries. Usually long tours pose a challenge for people with an untrained fitness level. And as soon as you ascend higher up, the route becomes more and more exhausting and the oxygen content in the air you breath decreases. Therefore: Assess your physical fitness level correctly! Even with a slower pace mountain hiking is a challenge for both muscles and lungs. In addition, you carry some luggage with you on your back. This must not be underestimated at all! It is better to start with a smaller tour on a more flat terrain and then improve with every additional hiking route. As the saying goes: No one is born a master – gain experience and build stamina!
