Disclaimer: I’m neither a hiking expert nor a full-fledged mountaineer. I just love a different level of sightseeing and nature trip so it’s always been my goal to trek at least 1-2 mountains each year. And guess what? I’ve also gone through some hiking mishaps – whether it be my clothing or stuff. But at the end of the day, what matters is being able to reach the goal and enjoy the whole journey.
I still have a lot to learn and here I’m sharing with you what I usually wear on a day hike as well as my packing essentials. Check out below and hope this may help you on your first or next mountain adventure. Enjoy!
