The level of this trek leans from moderate to slightly difficult, which naturally demands exceptional physical fitness, stamina and endurance. It is strongly advisable to have prior trekking experience of scaling at least 3,500 meters before you approach this trek, which means beginners should stay away. Also, proper acclimatization is key here.

Mid-June to October is ideal for the trek, since the snow will have cleared up significantly. Although, July may experience bouts of heavy rainfall, making the trails slippery and treacherous.

The temperature may dip to as low as -2 degrees in the night, making it imperative to carry enough warm layers.
