Up to 6 hrs of physical activity per day.
At times carrying a backpack of 5 - 8 kgs.
Tracks generally in good condition.
Altitude gains of up to 600m on harder days.
No hiking experience necessary.
Reasonable standard of fitness required
The track is well graded and maintained, and all the major rivers and creeks are bridged. Only an average fitness level is therefore required. The walk has been planned so that short days follow the longer ones.
Clients are only expected to carry their own personal gear such as sleeping bag, clothing, etc. Your guides take care of the food, cooking gear, and other equipment. The pace will be slow so as to allow ample time for observations, drink stops and snack breaks.
