What do I need to have?
Trekking shoes are always required as the risk of ankle turning and foot pain is high for those that are not used to hiking.
Also each hiker should carry 3L of water, bring a snack, and have a hat & sunscreen.
You can easily rent a TREK SET: Trekking shoes, backpack and camelback with required water for 150 dh
Other than that, nothing!
