The climb requires a good training and is addressed to sports people. You’ll be walking for 10 hours on the second day, so you’ll have to prepare and practice cardio during your endurance trainings. (biking, running, …) Don’t forget that you’ll be walking with a 8 kilograms backpack, this increases the amount of effort needed to walk, be sure to be training with this extra weight.
