Basic Survival Tips

Survival in nature means the proper use of natural resources (water, flora and fauna) in order to maintain health, to satisfy basic needs (sleep, food, water …) and personal safety in extreme situations in nature caused by various natural, social or any other factors.



1. Do not attempt to break through the storm. Concentrate on finding a safe place and shelter from the wind.

2. The worst mistakes can be caused by one’s impatience. The best example is climbing to the top of a mountain. Climbers who think that reaching the top of the mountain is not particularly challenging, move fast and energetically, not realizing that soon they will run out of strength. In doing so, they remain stuck in the mountain because they become too tired. Many of them unfortunately die.

3. People often go for a hiking, not prior informing someone about that. Even a small, easy walk through the mountain can end up with broken leg or, you can get lost. So, as much as you think that the walk you are taking through the mountain is safe, always inform someone where you are going and when you will come back.

4. Another beginner’s mistake is to underestimate the sickness you may suffer while in mountains and its consequences. Everything is much worse when you are high in mountains. It's even worse when you're high in the mountains – you have to fight dehydration, cold, wind…Survival is much more difficult at high altitudes.
