The lake. which measures about 63 m (200 ft) across and has a sweltering temperature of 82 °C (180 °F), bubbles with a greyish-blue color and constantly fills the air with a cloud of vapor. Viewing the lake requires a tough-but-rewarding trek through the steep hills of the dense rainforest. Expect a 13 km (8 mi) trip with muddy trails and stream crossings; locals recommend hiring a guide to help you over the narrow trail. Be sure to wear appropriate footwear.

  • We have 8 h, with some breaks! It was beautiful but still quite physical. The path in the Valley of Desolation and the River then was almost completely destroyed during the passage of Hurricane Maria in September 2017. So, there are a lot of passages in escalation or de-escalation to spend, they are often equipped with a rope. The Valley of desolation is very impressive and the Lake also! I'm glad to have my challenge! I think it is better to take a guide, it's safer and share his knowledge of the field. Ours is called Benjamin (such 6125969) and he was very friendly and patient! Take water in quantity!
