Please note that for this trip, we are going to do a lot of walking in mountain terrain, and a certain level of fitness is require.

Although we are going to stop a lot to take pictures and admire the landscape, expect 5 to 6 hours walks each days.

A good pair of mountain boots is necessary, and a backpack packed as light as possible with the bare necessities. We will be giving you a list of essentials at a later stage.
