Day 2: First Day Hiking

Depart with your guide for an enjoyable 14km day of hiking starting with a steep decent of half an hour in the first level of the lower canyon. You will pass through a stunning gorge and go through a second half an hour decent deeper into the canyon until you reach an oasis of natural rock pools where you can swim at your leisure. Meanwhile a back-up team will set up tents for you with stretchers, mattresses, nice and conformable duvets along with bucket shower and chemical toilettes before enjoying your second night dining by the light of the camp fire. A dedicated chef will be there for an unforgettable dining and breakfast experience.
