Hiking boots themselves are designed to be used in tough terrains such as rocky roads, riverbanks, steep terrain, muddy terrain, and roads to get to the heart. And it is designed for use in outdoor activities. In addition, this type of shoe also has the function to minimize ankle injury when slipping on heavy terrain.

Keril itself is different from backpacks or ordinary bags that are often used for school or play. Because the keril itself is designed with features that can help climbers carry heavy loads but not too heavy and comfortable.

Don't forget to choose the one that has a headcover or hoodie and make sure the sleeping bag matches your height so that the whole body is covered perfectly.

4. Mountain Jacket

Like a sleeping bag, a mountain jacket also serves to warm the body and plays a very important role in climbing. Because mountain jackets will be used during climbing if the weather starts to get cold, especially at night. Even when sleeping, this jacket will also go into the sleeping bag to make it warmer hehe.

Aside from being a body warmer, a mountain jacket also functions as a body protector from the sun. But remember, this mountain jacket is used when the temperature starts to cool or the fog starts to come and at night. Because if it's daytime and weather conditions and temperatures are normal, it's better to just take it off because it can make you uncomfortable. After all, it's too hot like seeing him with him eh.

The types of mountain jackets themselves vary with several additional functions.

This is also no less important, the climbing equipment that must be brought, namely clothes. And it is recommended to have clothes that have a quick-dry feature. Which can be used when traveling or trekking. Then another warm cloth or plain cotton material for sleeping.

Celana quick dry

At least we bring 3 sets of clothes where 1 set of pants and a quick-dry t-shirt for trekking, 1 set of normal clothes for sleeping, and 1 set for backup especially if it rains.

For trekking pants, try to choose plants that have many pockets and quick dry features. Because these many pockets are very helpful when on the mountain to place small water bottles, snacks, and other small equipment such as medicines.

7. Tent

Of course, this climbing equipment should not be forgotten, because it serves as a shelter for us while on the mountain, both from the cold night temperatures and rain and the hot sun and some mountain animals. The tent itself is usually adjusted to the number of climbing teams and is usually used as group equipment.


There are many types of tents, but most of the ones used in the mountains are dome tents. Scout tents are not recommended because it is difficult to carry them, especially the poles made of bamboo, but the stakes are not made of wood.

8. Cookware and Logistics

Of course, during climbing, we need nutritional intake to support hiking activities which consume a lot of energy. So don't forget to refill it with nutritious food, no more noodles, then noodles forever. If that's the case, it's found out that the boarding house children are really going to the mountains and they also want to move boarding houses again hehe.

The cooking utensils themselves are now compact, especially for climbers because all we have to do is bring a portable stove with gas and one package of nesting is enough. Usually, a nesting package consists of a large container with a lid for cooking rice and a container whose edges are not too high for frying the side dishes, for example making an omelet made with love without him, don't translate it, tar hungry.

In addition to the stove and nesting duo, don't forget to bring a folding Pisa to cut tempeh and other side dishes. Don't cut your relationship or your relationship with him, oops. Because I'm talking about food like this, I'm so hungry, I'm sorry, too.

Then don't forget to bring your cooking utensils, such as plates, spoons, forks, and glasses. For logistics, usually according to the agreement of the group or the mountain chef in the team. What does he want to cook when he's on the mountain? But don't forget to bring rice, because if you don't eat rice, it's not eating for Indonesians, right?

9. Headlamp or Flashlight

This is a piece of very urgent climbing equipment to carry, namely a headlamp or flashlight. The problem is that PLN hasn't reached the mountain yet. So if you are desperate at night, you can use a headlamp or flashlight to find a safe spot to remove what is stuck.

In addition, the headlamp is also very useful during the summit attack which usually starts early in the morning so that when you reach the top you can see the beautiful sunrise and the sea of clouds.

10. Trekking Pole

This is supporting equipment and is not mandatory, but for beginner climbers, it is highly recommended to bring this to help during the climb, especially on steep trails. Its stick-like shape can divide the body's weight by almost 30% when on steep trails.
