Regarding to luggage transports between the campsites, it is going to be provided by vehicles, so don’t be afraid if your luggage weight is bit oversized for carrying it on trail.

Expected weather in May is warm during the day (up to 25+ C), but nights are still fresh and in extreme cases the lowest temperatures could be close to 0 C, what is not to be expected in general.

A team of film makers will record the events in the camp thus making an easily accessible story about the event and the area where it would be conducted.
