Of course, the trip to the climbing basecamp will indeed make the body tired, especially if you come from far away. Well, sleeping and resting at basecamp certainly make the body acclimatize well and makes the body more comfortable and fresh when going to start climbing.

2. Breakfast/Eat Before Hike

Remember never to start climbing on an empty stomach or hungry. Because this is very dangerous and increases the risk of developing hypothermia which is very deadly for mountain climbers.

Because when the body is empty or hungry, it will not be able to increase the temperature in the body because no metabolism occurs. So it is very prone to hypothermia because the temperature in our bodies begins to drop.

In addition, an empty stomach will also make us tired quickly because there is no energy that the body can use that comes from food. Therefore it is very important to have breakfast or fill the stomach before climbing the mountain. And just let your heart be empty when you start climbing if your stomach doesn't because who knows on the mountain you can find the one who makes your heart not empty anymore, eh.

3. Warm up Before Starting to Climb

Mountain climbing is indeed a strenuous activity because it involves a lot of energy and has to walk for hours. Therefore, it is better to warm up first before climbing so that the muscles are not stiff.

Because stiff muscles will easily get cramps especially if the trip is done for hours like climbing a mountain. So by warming up the muscles will be weak and the body becomes faster to acclimatize.

4. Take a Casual Climb

It is better to start a mountain climbing journey in a relaxed manner (not fast or slow) so that the body can easily acclimatize or adjust to the environment. So walk at a leisurely or moderate rhythm so that the body can acclimatize properly.
