Proper Foot Wear: To prevent blisters, you should have proper footwear that fits correctly, appropriate socks for protection from rubbing and you should do trekking regularly and build up your feets conditioning for repetitive walking. Doing a long trek after many months of no activity may actually set you up for blisters. You should develop good consistent exercise routines to protect your feet.
