Overview

Get away from the stress of everyday life and escape to the outdoors. Stress, depression, and anxiety have a
way of building up when you’re cooped up indoors too long. Hitting the trail helps to put your life in
perspective and take your mind off your worries.
The world around you has a way of demanding your attention, which can ease any stress you may have built
up.
Whether you’re a seasoned hiker or just starting out, it should come as no surprise that hiking solo is an
adventure like no other. Walking through nature by yourself gives you the chance to soak in the surrounding
beauty without feeling the need to speak or focus on others.
On the flip side, hiking with a friend or group of people can create memories that last a lifetime. It can also
be a lot of fun. Feeling tired during your walk? A friend can cheer you forward.
Whether it be a solo walk or a group hike, either option will be filled with lasting memories — it’s just up to
you to decide which one is for you. To help you decide, we’ve created the ultimate guide to solo hiking and
hiking with friends

Convinced you need to do more hiking? Here are a few tips on where to start:
• Start with day hikes. If you want to get out there more, start with day hikes. Spend an afternoon strolling
around your local park, or drive to the closest forest for an afternoon hike. Make this your routine and
increase the length and amount of hikes you take over time.
• Join your local hiking community. While hiking on your own can be very inspirational and spiritualizing,
it often gives very little motivation to get out there again, especially on longer hikes. By joining our hiking
community, you’ll meet like-minded people, who will hike with you and motivate you to keep on hiking.
• Go on an overnight hike. Grab a friend and go on an overnight hike with a tent and a sleeping bag. Test
your physical condition by hiking for 5 hours and see if you’re ready to try trekking.
• Get proper hiking boots. If you feel like longer forms of hiking are for you, get some proper hiking
boots, a durable tent, and a warm sleeping bag with a pad. Your hiking boots should be waterproof with a
good sole and ankle support. Properly wear them in before a long-distance hike.
Go on a trek. Once you’ve been on a few overnight hikes and got the necessary hiking gear, go on a multi-
day trek. Join one of our awesome hiking tours exploring the Lebanese Highlands
Good quality hiking and trekking equipment are essential. High-quality equipment will allow you to enjoy
your hikes and treks even more and stay safe and warm no matter the weather!
Here’s a list of equipment that is worth the investment:
• Hiking boots. For short day hikes, comfortable sneakers might do it but for longer overnight hikes good
hiking shoes or boots are essential. For trekking, you might want to think about boots with ankle support.
Don’t forget to wear your shoes before you go on a hike.

• A backpack. For day hikes, a light day backpack with a hydration pack is perfect. For longer hikes and
treks, where you need to carry your food and tent, a 50-60L backpack should suffice. Make sure it has a
waist belt and adjustable back support.
• A tent. Your accommodation for the duration of your trip should be sturdy. If you intend to hike during
warmer seasons, a 3 season tent will do, yet if you plan to hike during winter, make sure your tent has a skirt
and can withstand wind, rain, and snow.
• A sleeping bag. When buying a sleeping bag, adhere to the comfort temperatures provided by the
manufacturer. Usually, there are three numbers: comfort, limit, and extreme. Comfort is the temperature at
which a female will rest comfortably, limit – a male comfort temperature, extreme – the lowest temperature
at which a female will be able to sleep for 6 hours without the risk of hypothermia.
• Compass, maps, and a GPS device. Before you go on any hiking trip, make sure you have a detailed map
of the area. For longer treks, it’s good to have a GPS device or a compass too. Make sure you know how to
use them.
