Cost is too high. Too many people. Read somewhere that the British cut down all the trees to make a hunting camp...so it never was a natural cleared plain. Good vista but many in this area...save your money.

It is an just an ok walk which makes the cost even more ridiculous with foreigner cost 600% of cost to locals. It seems more like a UNESCO sponsored fund raiser. We walked the entire trail in 4 hours and saw no wild life except...More

If she is relatively fit, I would recommend it. It's a beautiful place. I would recommend a little training before the trip, evening walks etc... to get in shape.
