The trail is really not well maintained. You will have to step over several fallen trees on the track. It had rained the day before our hike and the first 5 km were almost impassable because of the water holes. Not to mention that this...More
We are very experienced day hikers. We have hiked all over the country and done up to 15 miles in a day. We have done many other hikes listed as "strenuous", and never had any major problems, until we did this hike. This was the...More
