Make sure your body and mind are in correlation with each other. You should be prepared mentally and physically for your trip. Since you will be in some remote location, it will not be as easy as travelling to a city or a town.
If you are not physically ready to be at your destination, never try to compromise with it. Health is the first and foremost priority, so do not undertake any risk, especially if you are a newbie. There may be challenges throughout your journey which in turn will lower your morale.
2) Research About The Location Properly

Get to know each and everything about the location, from the weather to the surroundings and the local customs. Do not assume things on the basis of factual errors. Go through different articles and blogs written about the place, and if you are planning to visit some secluded and unfrequented spots, make sure you are moving with details.
Different locations abide by different sets of rules and regulations. Sincerely research the people and their traditions if you have planned a journey to some tribal setting. Avoid planning in the nick of time.
3) Safety Measures

Prevention is better than cure and it's no good crying over spilt milk. So, before you reach your destination, ensure that you have decided on everything from means of transport to accommodation.
Possibly try to get in touch with some natives of the locale before you set your feet on their ground. It will also help you in socialising with them, which in turn will help you in exploring more of your destination.
4) Things To Pack
This is essentially the not-to-forget part of planning trips. While travelling to any unconventional setting, assure that your backpack is light enough to make your trip more convenient and not tiring. Things to pack should include a torch, battery, first aid kit, camera and accessories, water bottles, packaged food, a map and skin creams.
Depending upon the weather of your destination, pack your clothes and other required things.
Assure that you have kept all the requisite items.
5) Socialise And Mingle With The Locals
Communicating and learning is an important part of every trip. We all travel to explore the beauty and meanwhile, if we are making new friends on the way, it will certainly open doors for us to know more about the place and get comfortable in the new environment.
Locals are the major source of guidance and knowledge. If you walk parallel to them, eventually, it will make you understand and imbibe the nature of the current establishment. Travel by public transport and spend time at the local market to know more about their nature. If possible, learn their vocabulary.
Well, these were few tips on travelling to remote places. Follow these steps and make your journey memorable with stories and legends. Good luck!
