Trip Notes

•    As this trip is an expedition journey, travellers who register for this trek must to have experienced before for long day trek
•    In most of part of this trip we haven’t access to the road as we are in the middle of the mountains 
•     Sometimes the volume of the rivers is high and we cannot cross the river and we should change our route and climb up the mountain 
•     For cross the rivers please bring an extra light shoes or sandal and you should carry it in your day pack
•    Sometimes in the ridge we haven’t access to water and we should carry our own water for the entire of the day
•    During the night in a couple of nights we haven’t access to electricity, shower and toilet and travellers must to be prepared for this matter
•      As we revel in a very remote area and local people are very poor, having something for children will make them happy.
•    On this trip you will carry your day back during the day and we carry only your essential stuff (Max 5  kilo) with the mule. We should reduce our stuff during the trek as there is limited mule in the village and local need their mule for their local works. 
•    We will give you a group duffel bag and you will put your stuff on it. The rest of the stuff will be in the first village and after the trek you can catch again
