Many thanks for contacting us!!! It works athletic dry-fit capris or pants. Because of the rocks I´d be better to wear Closed toed shoes (sneakers) and a pair of flip flops after the hike

The best way to find out more information would be by visiting the website, but TripAdvisor will not let me paste the website in. Find it by searching "Taroa Adventures" in your search engine.
