El sendero inicia en las antenas, sobre los 4300 m. El sendero termina en la guardianía de Baños del Ministerio del Ambiente (MAE). El paisaje es espectacular, y en días despejados se puede ver el Antisana. Al llegar a la guardianía del MAE es necesario contar con transporte para salir a Papallacta (el camino de regreso cruza por las Termas de Papallacta).

    We did this hike on Jan. 25, 2013 and are planning to do it again this year with a student group. It took 5 1/2 hours, but once you're at the guard post at the end you need transport out to the main road, which if hiked would probably be another hour. It is relatively easy if the weather is nice, but could get long and a bit boring if the conditions are uncomfortable. We took a guide and are glad we did as the trail diverges in several places. The vegetation is beautiful.

    You're right! I forgot to mention that you need transport at the end of the trail. Have fun next time you go...
