Hiking during sunrise can be an incredibly rewarding experience but it can also be dangerous because of the lack of visibility available. The activity can become even more hazardous when conditions are bad, such as after rain or snow have fallen. Hiking at any time of day can be risky if you don’t prepare effectively. You may suffer dehydration, heat stroke or exhaustion if you over-exert yourself. Certain creatures may also harm you including bees, snakes and more.
Have you been hurt whilst hiking during sunrise?
It’s vital that you carry out research beforehand if you are planning on hiking during sunrise. Even during the summer months, temperatures can be dangerously low depending on where the hike is taking place. Taking winter clothes with you can be beneficial even if you are expecting temperatures to be high. You should research the mountain and area you’ll be hiking in before the experience begins and shouldn’t over or underestimate how long it will take you to reach the summit. A headlamp could be incredibly useful if visibility is likely to be a problem, and you should always use the most appropriate footwear you can. It’s never advisable to hike alone. Make sure someone knows what time you expect to be back so they can take action if you are out for longer than expected.
