Mustang Horse Trek

Health & Fitness

Your health

Trek team members will be provided with pre-trip medical advice and a medical questionnaire and asked to visit their family physician to receive a full medical examination.  This information will be sighted only by the trek leader and our medical adviser and treated with full confidentiality.

Fitness required for the trek

The Mustang trek is of only moderate difficulty as we can ride the horses on most of the trail apart from steep descents and the occasional exposed section. Participants must be of reasonable health and capable of walking/riding for about 4-6 hours a day. As the highest point in the Mustang region is above 4000m there will be effects of altitude to some people, which is not necessarily determined by age, fitness or previous experience.  However, by riding on horseback we are rarely faced with much in the way of strenuous exercise unless we choose to walk off the good food!

Our program involves slow and gradual climbs to higher altitudes with time to enjoy the views and meet the hospitable local inhabitants. If there is any doubt about your health please consult a doctor first.
