What to Expect
DAY 1: TRANSFER IN

Transfer in from the airport to Inraki Lodge

DAY 2: INTAG VALLEY

After and early breakfast, we shall set forth to the valley of Intag, were the small town of Aguamirla is found. Here we will start our walk towards the mountains.  After packing our bags, we will head to Pitura River and start ascending towards the community of Guananin, where we will set up camp.  On this day, our walk will not be very long, although we will experience a challenging change of altitude that will surely test our legs.

People in Guananin are very friendly and we are most likely to find curious and playful children who will show interest as to keep us company while we set up camp.  As part of our communitarian tourism program, we will purchase local produce such as potatoes, yams, lima beans and corn for our dinner.  In this way, we are not only passers-by, but we also support and contribute to local economies. B/L/D

DAY 3: PIÑAN ANDEAN COMMUNITY

After a hearty breakfast, we will continue with our journey towards the valley of the Pitura River.  This is a beautiful valley, where the river twists and turns through breathtaking fields filled with cows and horses.  We will walk through ancestral paths, which people still use to connect from one community to another. One of these paths will lead us to the small community of Piñan, a quaint village that looks like something straight out of the Lord of the Rings.  The community of Piñan has a small shelter in which we will comfortably spend the night. B/L/D

DAY 4: PIÑAN LAGOON

On this day, we will go to the beautiful Lagoon of Piñan.  From the community in which we spent the night, we will walk for about an hour until we get to a lookout point in which we will be able to see the lovely landscape with its surrounding mountains.  If we feel like it, we can take a walk around the lake, which takes about four hours before heading back to the community. B/L/D

Optional: Camping on the shores of the lake.

DAY 5: BACK TO INRAKI LODGE

On our last day in the mountains, we will return from the community of Pinan to the community of Aguamirla. This will be a longer but brisker walk, since most of it is downhill.  On this this day, it will require about six hours to get to our destination.  At night, we will be arriving to the Inraki Lodge, where delicious dinner will be waiting for us.  B/L/D

DAY 6: TRANSFER OUT

Transfer out. We will take you to the airport to catch your flight back home.  B
