DAY 7: Departure

Frequently asked questions (FAQ)

What happens in the case of bad weather?
Sir Alan Flemming once stated: “There is no such thing as bad weather, only inappropriate clothing”. But, it’s surely possible that bad weather conditions may prohibit our planned tour in some cases. If this happens to
be the case, the guide will reorganize the upcoming stages.

 

I have some issues with elevation, is that a problem?
The treks each day are between 1,500 and 2,300 meters of altitude (between 4,900 and 7,500 feet). If you have trouble with high elevations, please consult a doctor or medical professional for their expert opinion before booking this trip.

 

Is some training necessary before participating in this trekking tour?
Yes, it is highly recommended. Sore legs, blisters, or other ailments related to walking following the first stage could ruin ruin the entire week for some. This trip is suited for people that are already strong walkers. If you don't feel you’re able to walk the entire trek, we can also organize a portion of it for you in a different way. Just contact us with a detailed description of your request and we will be happy to accomodate your individual needs.

 

What specific clothing do you recommend?
We suggest you always carry a light hydration pack with a few layers such as a light insulation jacket, gloves and a hat. Also, keep in mind that the weather in the mountains can quickly change. We suggest packing
some warmer and comfortable clothing as well which can be left in your bag that we will transfer for you from hotel to hotel.
