There is a village within the park area that has a handful of places, however I believe you either have to hike to the real start of the treks, or attempt to flag down a bus on the way to the trail head. You can also bring a... More

Hello. Anyone with experience or knowledge about visiting in late January, any advice would be much appreciated! Lodging, transport and conditions are my main worries. I am prepared and experienced, just can't find many who have gone in winter. Thanks!
