Tour organizer's comments

The tour is of medium difficulty, it requires good physical fitness, absence of hypertension. A tourist should be active, hardy, and have strong joints. The longest route is up to 15 km long along narrow and rocky trails. But we always walk at a measured pace, we regularly make stops on the routes. The guide tries to adjust to the general pace of the group. 

If a tourist is tired and realizes that he can't go any further, then he can make a stop. The group will go on and pick him up on the way back. You can skip some days of the tour, do not follow the route, it is not prohibited. But then the tourist is left without lunch, as lunches take place on the routes. 

Most of our tourists are people who are participating in such tours for the first time and most of them go through all the routes. But in any case, good physical shape is required.
