Why book this trip
To explore this remote and little-visited area requires a certain level of hardiness.There will long consecutive days on the road with plenty of lumps and bumps and a mix of accommodation that ranges from small hotels to basic guesthouses and yurts with very limited facilities. There will also be time spent at altitude, with the highest night on this trip spent at 3,900 metres above sea level. Although every effort has been made to acclimatise gradually and extra days have been built in to aid acclimatisation, it is likely that most will feel the effects of altitude and that altitude sickness could be a possibility. It is also worth noting that there will be parts of the trip where we will be far away from any hospitals or medical centres, although our Tour Leader will carry a Satellite phone in the event of an emergency. We therefore recommend that you are fit and in a good state of health when travelling on this trip.
With all that said, the reward for these challenging conditions is sharing some of the best scenery in the world with very few other tourists.
