The team had covered a distance of 650 kilometers across Arunachal Pradesh, Assam, Upper West Bengal & Sikkim while they travelled for more than 1500 kilometers in the western, central and eastern Nepal. Breaking out of I am too old for this, the team walked an average of 25 kilometers every day in the initial phase of the expedition, gradually increasing the distance over time. This was the acclimatization phase where the participating women along with the support staff tuned their bodies to the mountain conditions.
