Tips from local tour guide

1. This trip is available throughout the year. The best seasons are from May to October when weather is generally the best. Winter is too cold and possible heavy snow but still doable according to the weather.

2. This adventure involves walking at parks and horse trails. So walking boots are necessary for this hiking tour. In this tour, elevation whilst on hiking is between 3200 meters to 5000 meters. Precautions for mountain sickness are necessary as well.

3. Rain proof and Sun block are also necessary when you are traveling at these places for weather changes quickly at high altitude.

4. Using public transport saves money but involves carrying heavy packs by yourself between hotels and bus stops.
