If you would like to hike from village to village, start with the northernmost village and work your way south. The north-south route has a little more downhill than the south-north route. All of the tourists who had done their homework seemed to know this.
Also, make sure you are up for a big hike. I mean, for someone who works out in the morning and spends the day at a desk job, this hike was exhausting. And my girlfriend almost didn’t make it.over 7 years ago
