  • Bring plenty of drinking water to last your alpine adventure.
  • Remember that water supplies may be unreliable. It's recommended you carry enough water to be self-sufficient for several days, in case of emergencies.
  • If you can't carry enough, you'll need to purify all stream water before drinking. Always boil water for at least 5mins or use treatment tablets, a filter or UV treatment.
  • Be sure to collect water upstream from toilets, huts and campsites.
