Information
Hotel, flight, program and itinerary are subjected to change without prior notice. We must point out that, as everywhere in this region you counter a very basic tourism infrastructure. You stay overnight mostly at simple hotels/guesthouses. Long journeys on bad roads and on high altitude (highest 4200 m!) and delays require good physical fitness, resilience and flexibility of the participants. Program and route changes due to unforeseen events are expressly reserved. If you desire the unknown and have an understanding of contingency, this is the right trip for you.
