Thing You Should Know
We called this tour the challenge because it is a challenge. It is a physically demanding tour and requires a certain level of fitness. Because of the harnesses we use, you must be under a certain weight (140kg or 308 pounds) and you must be able to fit in to the harness with a waist size between 65 and 120cm (26 to 47 inches). This is for the safety of yourself, other guests and our staff.
A bit more challenging in the rainy season (june to october), but also more fun as the waterfall delivers spectacular amount of water!
All the way up and down, you will have to carry your sleeping bag, helmet, climbing harness and drinking water.
