Via Ferrata is like rock climbing although instead of using a rope, you are securing yourself to steel cables that are drilled into the rock. This allows you access difficult/isolated mountainous areas that would otherwise require expert climbing skills/ropes or the willingness to climb very steep scrambles without any assurances of safety. It allows you to also get a glimpse of the isolated, raw beauty of the mountains. For someone who is reasonably in shape, it's a great way to get off-the-beaten path, work out while on vacation, and have an adrenaline-filled adventure!
In this post, this is a via ferrata guide for beginners with what you need for via ferrata, why to do via ferrata and where to do via ferrata. *Updated August 8, 2017*
