  • I made this excursion by leaving at 7:00 am from the parking lot, at that time, I was the first on site, I did not see a guide so I decided to go there solo. This hike is beautiful, the forest to begin with, and then there are no words to describe what you can feel from the desolation Valley! Without a guide, the end of the course is feasible, but it is necessary to be vigilant and take the time to raise your head to find clues that trace the way to the boiling Lake. I arrived at the Lake at 8:45 am with a steady rhythm. The atmosphere is amazing especially when you are there alone, there is nothing equivalent!

  • 6h of walk back and forward. 42,000 steps. A real chalenge, but only for the basic sportsmen. Not recommended for novices.
