The next few days of walking are much flatter and therefore easier!  What you gain in ease, however, you forfeit in remoteness. This section passes through a much more urbanised section of country.

Turn-by-turn directions

These maps and routes are designed to be used in conjunction with our traditional documentation. We have recently embarked on a conversion initiative to bring the two elements together, and this itinerary will be covered in due course.

In the meantime, using the two elements alongside each other should go a long way to ensure you have a safe, enjoyable and problem free day.
