ACTIVITY LEVEL

This moderate-to-challenging trekking journey is rated ‘3+’ on a scale of 1-5. The activity level on this custom journey will depend on the route we design for your private group. The trails are generally well-maintained and heavily traveled, with a number of rock steps, several suspension bridges, and some steep, narrow sections with exposure and fixed ropes. Although the actual distances traveled are moderate, the high elevation, dust, strong sun, and basic level of amenities on this trek make it more challenging.
