Travelling Information

We found the roads pretty wild too. Washaways had exposed big ruts and large rocks littered the track so we crawled along slowly. Although the road doesn’t pose technical challenges, you do need a high clearance vehicle. We came across two water crossings on our route, both of which were shallow and easy to cross. However, if there has been heavy rainfall in the area, these could become a problem.
