For this trip it is also possible to hire donkeys to carry your stuff on the mountains. It is very important to have in mind that if you decide to take the hikes on your own you will be fully responsible for packing your own equipment including water purifiers, portable stove for cooking, tents, trekking poles, food and any other first necessities equipment.
