This is a fantastic trail ranging from 400 to 950 metres above sea level and passing through beautiful primary forest, stunted elfin forest and stunning scenery. The trail is long and very steep in places, but the variety and abundance of birds and the outside chance of finding Southern Woolly Spider Monkey make the effort very worthwhile.
A very early start and a full day are required to walk this trail. Transport to and from the trail and a packed lunch are included in the accommodation price, however, we strongly recommend hiring a guide. Make sure you take plenty of drinking water with you.
