Important Information

For this trip, a head for heights and robustness are required as you will be driving on rough roads for an extended period. Guests with back and heart problems are advised against participating. Temperatures in Waschlowani can exceed +40 degrees Celsius, so effective sun protection is essential. Remember to bring sunscreen, sunglasses, and a hat.

A rain jacket is recommended, especially in the mountains. Sturdy hiking boots are sufficient for light to moderate hikes lasting up to 2.5 hours. Hiking poles are optional and can be taken along based on individual preference.

You have the flexibility to decide whether you want to participate in each hike individually or wait in the village or by the off-road vehicle until other participants return, especially if there are other guests on the trip.
