Although there are several water streams in between the trails. We would request you to carry an extra empty bottle which you can fill up to keep yourself hydrated through the trek.
Listening to water flowing, birds flittering and cold breeze makes you closer to nature and motivates you to walk all through the mountains and to the peak.
A steep inclination on the Zig-Zag trail connects you to the last trail that guides you to the peak.
