My wife and I are going to Switzerland next month to celebrate her birthday. However we intend to do a short leisure hike of 1-2 hours either at Zermatt or Interlaken based on earlier recommendations in this forum. We come from a tropical country and we hardly do any hiking back home.
Since we are on a leisure trip I doubt we will be equipping ourselves with hiking gear etc. At best we would probably have a good pair of walking shoes. Are they any specific gear that we should be bringing along for our leisure hike ? Would our summer clothes be sufficient for the hike ? Any other equipment necessary ? Any other specific advice for first timers on a short leisure hiking trip in Switzerland ?
Really appreciate advice from fellow travelers or forum moderators.
Thanks and Regards
