This is a challenging hike as it is marked as a four-shoe hike. Participants must be in good walking shape. The walk can take 12 hours. but it all depends on the group, movement and weather. Participants need to dress according to the weather and bring a good and energy-rich lunch for the day and plenty of water, as water may not be available on the way. Good to have spikes with you.
