Level 7 – Tough
This is a tough itinerary suitable for those looking for that big adventure that packs loads in. There will be a combination of long, active days, several early hotel departures and long journeys by coach. The itinerary may also involve multiple flights and travel by non-traditional means such as safari vehicles, rickshaws/pedicabs, bicycles etc. Some accommodation will be based on authentic home stays, overnight camping and some basic rural hotels which all adds to the adventure. Guests should be capable of walking more than 15km at a time over uneven, difficult terrain which will include hills. Guests should have tried these distances at least once before the trip, be in excellent physical condition and be very active on a regular basis (minimum10 hours per week) to safely enjoy this tour.
At this level we recommend previous trekking experience, preferably at altitude. You need complete confidence in your ability to trek for many days over difficult terrain. Extremes of altitude and weather may be encountered.
