Awesome hike with great shopping and food on the way. Be a local and eat like a local in the indigenous market.

We parked in town and walked half a mile to the trail head. It is 2.5 km up to the top. It's a pretty steep, strenuous climb so make sure to dress appropriately and bring water. Unfortunately, we got to the top to discover that...More
