❶ Are your packages beginner-friendly? YES! The trail is relatively manageable to navigate. It does get a little tricky when it just rained because the slope can be slippery/muddy. We do encourage our guests to bring a trekking pole and a positive disposition to finish the activity.
❷ How strong is the phone network? There is none on the trail and weak at the summit. Which can be a good thing if you really want to disconnect from the stress of work.
❸ Are there water sources on the trail? Not really. But you can drink from Tinipak river as it is pretty clean.
❹ Do you accept kids/ senior citizens? Kids at least 10 years of age are welcome provided they are accompanied by a parent/ legal guardian. We're always happy to have senior members of the society during our hikes. It would be prudent to check with your family doctor if you're good to go on an outdoor trip.
❺ What are the essential things to bring for this trip? A small back-pack, 2L of water, trail food, packed lunch, hiking footwear (shoes/sandals with a good grip), walking stick, swim wear for Tinipak river, headlamp for caving/spelunking, extra set of clothes, water proof camera (or camera in a water-proof container) extra cash for miscellaneous expenses.
