The times of mountain huts are changing
Recently, times in the mountains and among hikers have changed significantly. With the increasing availability of information and equipment, the number of people heading to the mountains has also increased, bringing both positive and negative effects on the environment and the hiking experience.
Positive changes include greater awareness of nature conservation, better mountain trails, organised huts, and spreading hiking culture. People are becoming more aware of the importance of preserving nature and the environment, so hikers behave more responsibly, do not leave trash behind, and try to maintain clean paths.
Negative changes include overcrowding of mountain trails and huts, increased risk of accidents, and a less authentic hiking experience. Due to the more significant number of hikers, traffic jams often occur on the trails, reducing the enjoyment of hiking and increasing the risk of accidents.
In addition, the spread of hiking culture has led to new trends such as “selfies” and “Instagram” tourism and the pursuit of extreme experiences. These trends can lead to dangerous behaviour and ignoring safety regulations, which can endanger the individual and other hikers and mountaineers.
Times are changing, and people must be aware of their responsibility to nature and other hikers. Only in this way can an authentic and sustainable hiking culture be preserved and the beautiful mountain environment surrounding us be protected.
