Visitors of more than one day to GHNP are strongly advised to buy travel insurance that covers emergency medical treatment and evacuation.
GHNP’s two main areas for trekking are the ecozone and the Park interior. All activities in the park are conducted on foot – there is no provision for motor safaris.
All four of the park’s valleys offer moderate to difficult treks. Multi-day treks include strenuous climbing, requiring thorough preparation and stamina.
Proper trekking gear is also necessary, particularly to cope with unexpected drops in temperature.
