You will have to cross four sections where the trail becomes very narrow in parts and comes close to the edge of the hills. The path is rocky and there are a few uphill and downhill hikes. Though not too difficult, we have given it a grading of four as it is towards the end of the challenge and most of you will be tired by this time. So be very careful while walking this part especially if you are covering this section in the night.
