Definitly a physical challenge. Great views and great experience. The guides and porters really helped pull it all together.
Needed a push from time to time and got it from the staff when we needed it. The weather cooperated and it was gorgeous views the whole way. It did rain and hail the second day, making the descent from Dead Womans pass a little treacherous. Although we ended up a little soggy everything turned out fine.
The food was great. Really Healthy local fare when they could. Porters were great carried my wife's bag from day one.
Overall a great experience.
