Today you may be walking past a few different areas where cows graze. Although generally very docile and used to walkers, keep your distance and never turn your back on a cow that is behaving strangely or aggressive. Be particularly vigilant around cows with calves.
In rainy weather, the narrow trails can be muddy and slippery. Make sure to wear closed and sturdy footwear with plenty of grip. Walkers need to be steady on their feet.

Food and drink
During your hike, you’ll be able to stop off at the mountain lodges for a bite to eat. Nevertheless, we recommend you stock up on supplies and plenty of water before setting off.
You’ll be walking on forest trails and mountain paths. Please remember to bring sun cream, a hat and plenty of water. If you’re used to walking with poles or hiking sticks, we highly recommend you bring them along. Given you’ll be crossing a small stream, we also recommend you wear waterproof hiking boots.
