Tip: Navigating on The Southern Route
Although the Southern Route is well marked with cairns we recommend downloading the .gpx file of cairn locations just in case,
Where experience comes in is with route finding. Walking straight towards the next cairn is not always the best option, especially when there’s a deep gorge between the two. You’ll need to look at the terrain and figure out the safest and most efficient path between two points, which may not be the shortest distance. If you’re going up or down a steep hillside, create your own switchbacks, descending or climbing in a snakelike pattern. This makes uphill much easier and prevents falls on downhills.
