At a glance

This trail is relatively short but very adventurous with multiple river crossings and walking on an unbeaten trail. A walking stick would be ideal to help you wade across the rivers. The trail takes only 4 hours if you start at the water intake point or 6-7hours of you start at the fishing camp.
