Don'ts



DON'Ts

  • Do not tackle what is beyond your training and experience. Ensure that your equipment is in good condition.
  • Don't go into the mountains alone unless you have necessary experience.
  • Don't make loud voices and use radios as these disturb others.
  • Do not throw stones and dislodge boulders.
  • Do not pollute water.
  • Do not remove the plants, flowers and trees or damage them.
  • Don't disturb wildlife.
  • Do not wear climbing boots that leak or are tight.
  • Do not permit your socks to wrinkle under your feet inside the boots.
  • Do not neglect minor injuries like cuts, blisters and ulcers as they predispose to frostbite.
  • Do not sleep with your boots on.
  • Do not touch cold metal. Touching cold metal with bare hands peels off a thin layer of skin, especially when the hands are damp.
  • Do not carry too heavy a load. Do not over-exert. Fatigue predisposes to effects of cold.
  • Do not neglect eating or taking enough fluids. At great heights food appears dull and the appetite is poor.
  • Do not have alcohol at heights.
  • Do not forget to carry your survival pack.
  • Do not leave behind your first aid kit.
  • Do not disturb mountain ecology and nature's balance.
