THE LEVEL OF THE EXCURSION

It is about a Trek without notable technical difficulty. It is necessary to be in good physical condition and to be able to go 5 to 8, each day, with a studied rhythm from your guide. We have stops all the walking paths, with 01H30 to 02H00 in midday for rest and lunch pause

 

There is always a light back bag where to take minimum of daily needs (gourd or bottle of water, food of race, camera…) All the luggage and food are transported by the mules. When a medical problem (distortion for example), it is always possible to call upon an extra mule. However, it should be known that the ground is not flat, that it is necessary sometimes to go up to climb a collar, that you will find certain stages a little long… In short, you will have physical feelings, it is certain, and it is necessary to have the desire and the spirit of hiking and walking in mountain.

 

The itinerary indicated will be able to undergo modifications imposed by the mean level of the group, or by the climatic conditions.
