DIFFICULTY RATING - LEVEL 5 - ULTIMATE
This is one of Tusker’s most demanding treks both physically and mentally. It is the ultimate in challenges. You are hiking over rugged, steep terrain gaining steep elevation from 6,000-ft up to 19,341-ft. into areas of exposure. Daily hiking usually takes up to 8 hours, with a total of 12-14 hours on summit day, and include substantial daily altitude gains and losses in remote areas of mountain environment. Weather can be extreme. You need to be in excellent physical condition – the best of your life. Previous similar hiking experience is very important. We may ask you to get a signed physician certificate.
Included in the cost of your trip is an Emergency Evacuation Membership by RIPCORD, the world's premiere evacuation company.

We have had decades of experience with emergency evacuations and have refined professional evacuation protocols with Ripcord specifically for each trip we run.
