    Beautiful walk from route 68 within Quebrada de las Conchas. First half of walk can be described as how a giant would feel walking though the Grand Canyon - far smaller scale but still beautiful. Once you break through t...

    Amazing trail that ends overlooking a valley with a extensive colour palette. It is worth descending into the valley.

    Technically easy hike- clear rock path to the summit which is never too steep to cause any technical problems. Obviously it’s a high ascent so you need to be fit but easy to do.

    Ese no es el cerro golgota y por ende no es la cima. Ese lugar es conocido como abra de la virgen del caminante.
