Comment on Tourist perished: Has Coroner’s recommendation been followed? by Evelyne Roullet.

Any death by accident is tragic, however when it comes to hiking and trekking, there are guidelines which are to be followed in any country by any hiker pro or beginner and anyone with common sense.
• Do not go solo unless your are 200% sure that you will come back.
• Study the country, the terrain, the dangers and read travelers’ blogs.
• Make certain you have everything necessary (water, food, first aid, alarm).
• Tell someone what you intend to do and when you except to be back.
The most important is this: Keep in mind that while you are free to explore, to be independent.
To enjoy your holidays or free time your lack of planning could affect those who will have to come to your rescue if you fail to plan your trip carefully.
