Food and Equipments

Food

  • Consider weight, expiration date, nutrition, and usability of food when preparing food.
  • High calorie foods such as candy and nuts are highly recommended to supply energy.
  • Do not bring too much canned food to reduce weight and volume of food waste.
  • Carry more dried food to lighten the pack if water is available along your hiking trails.
  • Prepare at last 1-day reserved food.
  • Bring appetizers or food of strong flavor to boost appetite.
  • Meat should not be cooked thoroughly or pickled. Boneless meat is recommended.
  • Fat, protein, and sugar should be in a proportion of 1: 1.1: 4.8. Also prepare food with mineral and vitamin.
  • Use hot water, rather than detergent, to clean dinning utensils after meals.
  • Do not bury or leave your food in the park. Please bring your food waste out of parks.

Clothing

  • Dress in 3 layers: sweat-shifting, warm-keeping, and protection layers.
  • Sweat-shifting layer should be made from quick-drying cloth like polyester fiber rather than cotton.
  • Female can wear quick-drying, sweat-shifting sports underwear.
  • People afraid of cold can wear warm-keeping, sweat-shifting clothes in winter.
  • Warm-keeping layer should be made from fleece, hollow fiber, or eiderdown.
  • Protection layer should be able to resist strong wind, frost, heavy rain, snow, and ultraviolet rays, etc.
  • Wear a woolen hat to protect your head and avoid catching a cold.
  • Wear two layers of socks: sweat-shifting layer and warm-keeping layer.
  • Mountain boots should be waterproof.

Lodging

  • Considerations shoul be taken to select your campground: whether it can provide shelter for your tints against the strong wind and heavy rain, whether its ground is flat, whether it provides drinking water, and whether it is easy for evacuation.
  • Considerations of selecting a tent include its comfort, weight, and ease to erect as well as how much it is windproof and waterproof.
  • Keep at least 50 meters away from your shelter or water sources to answer a call of nature. Be sure to bury your excrement in the hole.
  • Do not make a campfire.
  • Do not make big noises in the campground or shelter.
  • Keep the camping pitch clean and do not leave your garbage in the nature.
  • Please cooperate with volunteers on duty in East Syue Trail and Wuling Quadruple Mountains Trail.

Traveling

  • Constantly supply you water duing hiking.
  • Keep at a natural speed.
  • Take more short breaks than long rests when hiking in the mountain area.
  • Along the mountain trails, climbers going downhill should yield to those going uphill.
  • Bring a map and compass with you to avoid getting lost.
  • Take the planned trails rather than shortcuts to avoid damaging the mountain trails.
