If you decide to do the route on foot, you should do 23–30 km training walks. Your shoes should provide proper ankle support and your backpack should fit the shape of your back. The knees, tendons and feet are our weak points.
Take care of your feet: apply foot cream, wear seamless cotton socks and footwear that has been broken in. Your backpack should be light. Carry a small first-aid kit. Avoid large meals and take short, regular breaks.
