It is advisable to prepare your luggage carefully and fit for the time when you travel even though you can reach the peak all year round. Bring with you as few luggage as possible, only important stuff (including socks, scarf, warm clothes and especially flash light in case you go out in the dark), because climbing up with a heavy backpack on your back is not easy. When experiencing mountain road and going through the lush forest and stream, it is a good idea to take a first aid kit, raincoat, waterproof trekking shoes, insect repellent and some medicines for common diseases including: fever, flu and diarrhea. Drinks, snacks for re-energizing on the way and food are must-bring things. Use a lemon a day is advisable as lemon is very good for your health. To help to increase the water holding capacity of the body, eating a slice of lemon is enough. Bring a lot of electronic devices is not a good idea. If you bring with you telephone or camera, do not forget to put them in a plastic bag when you do not use them. If you enjoy your trip in the winter, heating patches to keep warm is also necessary.

Because of less preparation, many climbers even had to give up halfway. But definitely, just with a resolute willpower, anybody can get access to the top of the mountain.
