  • I asked that your guide is miracles. It is an amazing natural area to make trekking, up between the stones and enjoy the waterfalls

  • Local leaders, who refer to a guide as necessary wait at the start. First we doubted it. As it but then up went through caves and abandoned climbing rocks, our Guia WILLIAM us was a great help.
