The weather and terrain
Weather in the mountains can change quickly and without warning. The day time temperature should be somewhere between 6-20 degrees Celsius. The temperature can dip below freezing at night and you will be advised to bring a 3-4 season sleeping bag. Most days should be dry and bright, with the chance of rain showers. You will be sent a full kit list upon registering for the challenge so you are fully prepared for the climate.
You will be walking over undulating terrain with very few flat sections. The trek takes us up and down wide mountain passes and you will need to have good fitness to fully enjoy the experience.
Costs & sponsorship
This is an Open Challenge which means it is open to anyone. People fundraising for other charities will be on the trek. There are several trip dates available to suit you.
We ask everyone who signs up to cover the costs of the trip themselves. This is payable directly to the tour operator – Discover Adventure.
There is no minimum sponsorship target, we will support you to raise as much as you can.
