“Careful or you'll get lost like we did”

The Sleeping Indian Girl
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 9 April 2013

Agree with earlier reviews regarding problems finding the correct trail. We heeded the advice on TA about getting good directions but still managed to hike up the wrong mountain. The correct trail is very poorly marked. In fact, it's not marked at all at la Piedra del Sapo where you are supposed to make a left turn. Made the left turn and hiked and hiked steep trails for one to two hours--finally reached the top...of a neighboring peak. The man who had a house at the top was friendly and understanding, gently informing us the la India was "over there." At least the view was nice and we still felt our hike was worthwhile. Note: Lonely Planet advises against driving a car and parking in the area, but we didn't see a problem. If you want, you can pay one of the local kids to watch your car. False sense of security, since he won't be there by the time you get back.

If you look hard you can maybe visualize a profile made up of the tops of mountains (or possibly the crater wall, I don't know which and really it makes no difference). And we went out of our way for this?

Four of us went hiking up la India Dormida....it takes about 1 hr. 20 mins or so, at a fairly relaxed pace. It is not a strenuous hike, but neither is it a walk in the park. You walk up alongside a river, which is nice, but not anything special. It is only as you crown the peak, and come up into the windswept grassland top does the walk really become worth it. Once you come out of the trees you can walk along the ridge, up and down for quite a ways. You can see the valley of the volcano perfectly on a nice day. I don't recommend going down the main route one walks up...take the opportunity to stroll along the ridge and then descend down the grassy slopes, along one of the small footpaths. These lead back into the woods behind the valley neighbourhoods. Saw eye-catching blue-purple butterflies. great hike.

We had to make several attempts to find trails, in. It was very frustrating. Overall, we did not feel the hiking experience was worth the trip but did enjoy some of the few other things the area has to offer.

Best to start early as the sun is very strong. Fab views. You can go up the path from near the baseball court. The path is about sketchy at the top, but you can always retrace your steps if you get lost.
