Get ready for a walk, walk and walk for approximately 9.4 kms !! (Pheww)
Undoubtedly this hike will give you a beautiful experience of walking in sweat, clouds, mist, rain and breeze ! One can experience all of them in the total hike !
To consider for people who are not so adventurous and who prefer less walking. The plains may mislead you about the difficulty level !
There are levels of walking and they are easy, difficult and more difficult!!
And there are definitely the same the way they are listed. In the rains the rocks, the waking passage can be slippery making your hike really challenging. Till you reach bakers fall you will get an insight of your journey anyways !! One should be with very good quality hiking shoes with good grip which will be helpful while waking. Rain Coats, cap and some food stuffs are very important along with you. Remember to carry them in a paper bag as no plastics are allowed inside. They will remove the plastic covering of the water bottle too ( a good initiative though)
Do try to start your journey maximum by 7:30 am to see a clear view near the world end ( if you fortunate). Else the clouds will cover you well and give another experience for photography only 🙃
You will enjoy the named places called and mini worlds end and worlds end. They are the places where you can have a breathtaking views if there are no clouds.
Be very careful of the steep elevation of the worlds end while doing some photography.
This may take a minimum of 3 to 4 hours depending on the walking speed and time.
Apart from this: undoubtedly this will give an amazing feeling once you finally see the finish gate 😎
