AHHOUSE problem

Plz anyone Explain how to do this problem https://www.codechef.com/ISCC2017/problems/AHHOUSE/

please explain approach for this question.i think backtracking is the main key here

Try using any one of the shortest path algorithms in Graph Theory like Dijkstra’s or Floyd Warshall. Think of the 2D Matrix as a graph with each cell as a vertex and each of its adjacent neighbors (up, down, left and right) as the neighboring vertices of that vertex.
