Last day in Mullerthal, Luxembourg was exhausting as we cycled for almost 32 KM. You can read more about Mullerthal experience here.
Next day we start at Echternach busstation to walk 12 KM. All for sake of reaching Berdorf Fort. From a group of 10, only we 3 were brave enough to take this trail, rest bailed out for home in pain and agony from last days cycling.
You would want to sit down and relax for a few minutes. Take some deep fresh breaths and soak it all in.
And trust me this walk on Berdorf trail was not about the destination, it was about the journey. As we walk among the beautiful landscape of forests and rocks into huge farmlands. Walking for 4 hours in blissful nature was breathtaking.
This valley ensures unforgettable moments of pure physical exercise on Berdorf Trail. Ohh I forgot to mention my friend Akita, very playful.
There are some mistakes we did before getting into this trail and I hope you can learn from them.
1) Take frequent breaks – IN our case we had to catch a bus back to Luxembourg from Berdorf and had no time for breaks. But you should ensure to take 5 minutes stop after 1 hour of trekking.
2) Local maps are better than google maps – We wasted some time in assessing if we were on right track. We relied on Google maps and lost the directions twice and had to leave the trail and walk on road to make up for the loss.
3) Plan your hike well – This is not one of those things you decide in a group to do and start walking. You need to plan well in advance and should have all necessary trekking equipment.
Even after so much of travelling and planning I tend to make mistakes but this is one of the experiences of travelling. Hope you have a good time in Berdorf. If you have any questions or need any help, please comment.
