The terrain might not be familiar to you so you need to pack your bag accordingly. Keep it light as much as possible as you need to trek miles every day. Find out the necessary items that you need to carry:

Personal locator

There might not be any suitable map that you can follow. And more so, the phone battery will die within couple of days and then you need to chalk out your own route to the cliff. So, in such situations carrying a PLB beacon is a smart idea.

Planning for night halt?

For long trip, you might need to set up your night stay under the clear sky. However, carrying lightweight tent and bedroll can be a good option.
