In this article, I am going to share some of the precautions which one should take before going to a hill station. These precautions are very important for people going first time to a hill station. We go to a hill station for enjoyment; however, with a small mistake our whole journey can got spoiled. Hill stations are very good place to visit; however, sudden changes in weather can create problems for us. Also with increase in height amount of oxygen in air also decreases. Below are few points which are helpful in managing a good journey to hill station.
1) First and important thing is staying arrangement. It is always better to go to a hill station with pre booked accommodations. It is possible that on the same day many people may reach at that specific location and causes a problem in getting good accommodation. It is better to go for advance booking.
2) Second thing is to have all necessary medical tests done if your age is more than 45 or have some kind of serious illness.
3) Took all of your medicines with you because the chances of non availability of some of the medicines on hill station are high. Took some extra quantity of medicine because many times road to hill stations gets blocked suddenly.

4) Never forget to take the woollen cloths with you. Temperature may decrease sharply anytime on the hill stations.

5) Avoid night travelling on the hill routes. Due to lot of turns and fog it can become difficult to travel.

6) Must take an umbrella with you because sudden rain is common on hill stations.

7) In the place of leather shoe and sandals, take your sports shoes because they provide good grip on the ground.
