A difficult walk, with beautiful views but a descent, along a fence, very steep and long. A path in "zig zag" would be welcome ...

Me and my wife did this track last weekend. We did the loop clockwise wich if you prifer going up a steep incline rather than hiking down i would recommend. The husts are first come first sirve and both huts have a water tank. and the veus from the top are rad. I would check the werher befor going as the river crossing on the second day can be strong. All in all realy grate hike!! I would make shor you do this track.
