    The beauty of this track is that we got there, we have a qd panoramic view of 360 degrees. Very cool. The biggest rise is up to the plateau, after the climb is lighter and has a small climb to the Summit. More if you don't give up the last stretch, you will have a beautiful view.

    There's a trail a bit extensive for those who're not familiar, is considered average. But the view makes up for it. Recommend going with comfortable shoes even more for security reasons.

    The trail to the peak of Sealed itself is actually quite quiet (but it is important to remember that it starts on the plateau, so it is necessary to track the plateau or the Bishop's hat before). At the end there is a stronger rise but it's worth it. Climb the peak and stone cross rift rocket science because it is very risky. Don't try if you don't have experience with climbing/mountaineering. The views of one of the secondary and stones of points in the path already worth the trail

Where to stay in Monte Verde

For a small town, there are an exceptional number of accommodations in Monte Verde. There's no particular hotspot to aim for--almost every street offers several places to stay in the form of small inns or bed and breakfasts housed in traditional wooden houses. You can find a few larger hotels toward the edge of town or just beyond its limits. The high level of competition has ensured good-quality rooms and high standards of service across the board, in fact, plenty of accommodations offer spas and other luxury comforts as a part of your stay. Reserve your accommodations in advance, especially in January and February, when the town experiences its biggest influx of the year.
