IMPORTANT
Our tours are graded from Easy, Mediocre to Strenuous. The following information is being compiled in a generalized manner. As such, you will focus and emphasize on the parts that involve you and the tours that you booked.

Strenuous
Any tour that involve a consistency of 2 sets of trekking time of 4 hours each, we shall grade it as Strenuous. Some tours graded under Strenuous require us to start early either because we have to accomplish an 8-hour trek or to catch a glimpse of a sunrise. We do plan some contingencies for some impossibility due to unforeseen circumstances although we suggest you to get ready for the worse. In our experience, it is our heat that pulls most trekkers down rather then the distance of the track. Water is the sole remedy to any long trek. Lack of water can cause diarrhea. Most trekkers thought that diarrhea is caused by contaminated water rather than the lack of it. Don’t bring your travel documents and valuables for overnight and/or trekking tours.
