    Additional Clarifications

    The route does not present any particular technical difficulties, though the altitude reached and the distance covered should be evaluated as the second day entails a 10 hour walk.

    Therefore, not only will you have to be in relatively good physical shape but also having some prior experience in high altitude conditions.

    The programme could be changed at the discretion of the Campo Base Team / mountain guide – UIAGM based on the weather conditions.
