Tour Overview

A 6 days climbing expedition in the mountain gives ample time acclimatization and generally results in higher summit rates. It also helps in muscle restoration due to the resting at the camp site for as long as a whole day. Mountain climbers always experience warm weather in the low attitudes and cool and sometimes very cold weather. This, thus calls for adequate preparation at all times an at any cost to avoid mountain sickness. Occasionally the mountains experience sudden rainfalls or even snowing on the dry seasons. The terrain is also rough and rocky especially at the high attitudes. In high attitude and especially in moorlands you find the ground being soggy.
