Frequently Asked Questions

    • What is the level of fitness required on this trip?

      Our Land of the Thunder Dragon is a moderate (grade 3 trip) so you will need to have a reasonable level of fitness to undertake it. A moderate trip isn't particularly tough, the pace will be slow and you'd be with an experienced guide.

    • If one or two hikes are too rigorous for us, can we be transported to next destination and skip that day hiking?

      You'll camp in fairly remote places and the trekking is point to point, so it won't be possible to skip days.

    • Where can I find the more detailed information about this trip?

      If you visit the Exodus website you will be able to download the trip notes and read through the day to day itinerary in more detail.

    • We are in our late 60's and love to walk/hike, is this trip suitable for us?

      Our clients tend to be in their 40's, 50's and 60's for this trip and as far as I am aware we've had no issues with it.

    • What is the maximum group size?

      The maximum group size is 16.
