  • It's about 4 miles roundtrip from the end of the road to the top of the peak and back. Took us about 100 minutes to complete. Incredibly well marked trail with beautifully maintained bridges and signs...  more »
  • Rise about 1 h recommended early in the morning to the rising of the Sun. Also with the chance to see the sunset from 17: 00. Predict 1 L water per person! The breathtaking view!

  • We started the tour at 7:45 a.m., but at that time because coming down some walkers. We hired a guide, but the truth didn't see the need. The road is marked and our guide did not know the names of the trees of the dry forest. The road is not so difficult but to upload the heat gets more complicated. The view is beautiful from the peak and Breeze a great reward for the effort.
