It is a 100Km, 4-hour drive to the base camp. The area is a well-kept grassy meadow by the river, scattered with stationary tents. Inexpensive rental of sleeping bags is available. Note that bags will be included in the accommodation on the south side. There is a comfortable canteen, hot shower (included) and even a steam bath (at extra cost). For the rest of the day we ramble around the area, breeding our red blood cells. For the more determined, we offer a short hike to the mighty ‘Sultan’ waterfall with some hot mineral springs en-route.
