To ensure you enjoy your trip in all weathers, you will need to be reasonably fit and have good equipment. The walk is a moderate tramp with a climb and descent of about 600 metres over the Panekire Ridge. You can expect to walk 4-6 hours a day and carry a pack of up to 15 kg.
There are no gas cookers or cooking equipment in the huts so you need to carry your own. Bring your own toilet paper as well, as it is not provided. If you are camping you will also need to carry a tent and a sleeping mat.
Note that it can snow in summer - come prepared.
