ACTIVITY LEVEL.

This moderate trekking journey is rated a 3+ on a scale of 1-5. The trails are generally well-maintained and heavily traveled, with a number of rock steps, several suspension bridges, some steep, narrow sections with exposure and fixed ropes. Although the actual distances traveled are moderate, the high elevation, dust, strong sun and basic amenities on this trek make it more challenging.
