  • Plan your hiking route before departure and check the mobile network coverage as well as the locations of public phones and emergency helplines along the route.
  • Bring along suitable communications devices like mobile phones, walkie-talkies and GPS receivers.
  • Hike in a team and bring along fully-charged backup batteries / power banks for replacement / charging mobile phones.
  • If your mobile phone cannot connect to the network you subscribe, try dialling 112 for assistance during an emergency.
