Hazards & emergency

Mountains require awareness, in addition to passion and love! There is no shortage of dangers.

Before setting off, check the route and the weather. It is also essential to protect yourself from the sun, do not get dehydrated, follow the trails and paths. Above 2,500 meters, if you are not used to the altitude, any symptoms of altitude sickness could occur (headache, breathing difficulty, nausea and vomiting, dizziness and confusion); if so, report the emergency. Be careful not to get lost, especially on stretches between stones or paths that are not well marked.

Go back instead and resume your journey with more attention to the signposts. Watch out for falls and slips, discharges of stones and avalanches. If you are too tired, remember that you can always go back.
