THE LEVEL OF THE EXCURSION

It is about a Trek without notable technical difficulty. It is necessary to be in the good physical condition and to be able to go 5 to 8 hours each day, with a regular rhythm. We have 01h30 or 02h00 hours for a rest at lunchtime.

There is always a light back bag where they take minimum (gourd, 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 a 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.

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