Top Tips

This trail is hot and dusty so do bring plenty of water, sunscreen and a hat if you have one.
Expect the trail going out to take longer than the trail coming back as it’s all uphill.
There’s very little in the way of shops once you get an hour or so along the trail. However, moto taxis do pass frequently enough should you tire of walking and want to return to town quickly.
