The Sleeping Indian Girl, El Valle de Anton

4.3
#1 of 7 in Nature in El Valle de Anton
Reward yourself to breathtaking views of pristine surroundings as you climb to the top of The Sleeping Indian Girl. The mountain got its name from its resemblance to a girl lying on her back when looked at from a distance. The “face” and “neck” of the mountain have been carefully grazed, while the “hair” remains forested. The trail to the top is unmarked and steep in some areas, so make sure you bring good protective hiking shoes. Also, bring plenty of water for your hike.

  • $3 admission per person here finds a beautiful hiking trail. It runs past stone age rock drawings and a waterfall. The route is not signposted unfortunately. At one point, it seems to continue on straight ahead, but a local resident had to turn left us. The rise is a little challenging, you should be definitely fit and have no problem with rough terrain. There are no fuses on the slopes, so you should be especially careful with children. Once at the top you have very nice views of the village of El Valle in the volcanic crater. Then it goes back down.

  • I did not expect this hike to be so beautiful. You start at Piedra Pintada and then pass by Lover's Falls and several other waterfalls. After an hour of easy climbing, you get to the top with amazing ...  more »
  • Should make everyone who is in the country of Panama. At the "ascent" of India interesting one passes small waterfalls, rivers with crystal clear water and especially lots of nature. Highlights for me were the large rocks with pre columbianischen rock characters and a small natural water pool (with a small waterfall) in the man the hike for a quick dip in middle of the rain forest can interrupt (so bring swimming trunks). It was only negative that the tour plan only at the entrance (and not to the take) was present. We had to capture the plan so. This is definitely to recommend to not only geographically, but above all time to be able to Orient. Also you will encounter almost inevitably at the entrance to the India interesting children and young people, offering dollars for 1-2 poems about the history of India interesting or similar. Here you must wonder then, whether trying to help with a little spare change, encourages this behavior, but also (not in school to go)
