How Difficult is the Australian Camp Hike?

Australian camp hike is the perfect hike to travelers because it is one of the easiest hikes in Nepal. However, some obstacles can arise during your hike due to weather conditions.

Australian camp is situated in the hills, so there is a high chance of rainfall during summer. So you can find a more beautiful green forest with birds chirping sound along with lichen. Sometimes, you can find a little bit of a problem because of these lichens while hiking to the Australian camp. So you have to wear proper hiking clothes such as hiking boots, trousers, and a jacket. But you don’t have to worry about the lichen in the camp because the Australian camp is fully free of lichen.
