We can take maximum 70 participants. They are advised to observe the possibility of adverse weather conditions like rain, which is not very probable, possible though. Mosquito repellent may be a good idea. Bigger beasts like lynx and bear do roam the area, but in all probability will not be seen by such a big group of happily noisy people.
