Naro Moru Route

- Climbing Attempt Through Naro Moru Route

A popular short trek, suitable for energetic mountain hikers. It's a moderate hike to the summit that follows a straightforward path with manned accommodation huts statically located at the overnight stops.

It is a popular itinerary for hikers with limited amounts of time for their hike or those on a weekend break. The routing is quit convenient for larger trekking parties since it follows the same trail up and down from the mountain making it possible for those unable to reach the very top to wait behind at the lower camps to be joined by the rest after the summit attempt.
