Frequently Asked Questions:
Q1. Will we encounter wild animals during the trek ?
A1. The jungle is frequented by elephants, but while on trek if the foresters and guide feel that there is an wild animal ahead, they will change the route to avoid the wild animal. Animal Sightings are very rare. As we hike the thick forests, the noise alerts the animals and they avoid us. Wild Animals prefer to avoid humans and they can vanish in the thick undergrowth of the forest in few seconds.
Q2. Can all age groups participate in this tour ?
A2. The answer is a NO.
- Children below 12 years are not allowed.
- Only healthy people can avail this tour. If you are suffering for High BP, Sugar, Arthritis, joint pains or any other ailment, then this tour is not for you.
