  • You can be the beginning of the trail from the Sector Cerro Verde, which can be reached easily in transport public give Santa Ana (well check schedule of services, are not many) the only Trek can be guided in the morning they hope to form a group and they charge a symbolic price, not too much. The trekking is moderate, in strong parts, but the view is beautiful!
