Difficulty level

Click Here

The difficulty level of this trek is MEDIUM, however this varies from person to person. Most of the trek consists of wide trails; some patches have natural rock-cut steps and a few small boulders. Participants must be ready to walk uphill for a maximum of 2 and a half hours, downhill is about an hour. There will be stops during the trek for rest and re-hydration.

 

If you haven’t been on a trek, you should know that there is a lot of walking. Moderate treks begin to present more of a challenge to first time trekkers. So, these treks are suitable for any walker looking for something that is a little more challenging and energetic. However, we believe that the best views come after the hardest climbs. The payoff is always equivalent to the effort. At every summit, you are welcomed to the most majestic views & at the end of every trek, you learn that you are taking back home lifetime memories.
