For many, a mountain trek is synonymous with sleeping in a tent. It is a wonderful experience to bring along your living accommodations - you come closer to the wilderness and can choose where you want to put up camp.

A good alternative for beginners or trekkers who want to carry a smaller pack is to stay at a cabin or mountain station. Choose between trekking from cabin to cabin along one of the marked trails, or staying in one place and taking day trips into the local surroundings. If you are staying in a cabin, a wind sack is an absolute necessity - both for short breaks and if you need to set up an emergency camp.
