Sendero La Garganta Verde Reviews
Merece realmente la pena! Es precioso pero no recomendable de hacer en agosto! Jeje había muchas zonas donde no había agua y eso es lo más divertido. more »It's really worth it! It is beautiful but not recommended to do in August! There were a lot of areas where there was no water and that's the most fun.
impegnativo ma meraviglioso. I grifoni volano alto ma anche sopra le teste dei turisti. E' un luogo davvero incantevole. more »challenging but wonderful. Griffins fly high but also above the heads of tourists. It's a really lovely place.
Beautiful walk. We went up & down in 2.5h. it said permit was required but did not see anyone to check. Maybe in high season..
Firstly, I should note that in order to hike this trail, you're supposed to get permission (either by going to the visitor center in El Bosque or calling; if you don't speak Spanish, it might just be easier to do it in person). All they need is passport information for some reason, but you don't need to pay. Driving to the trail is a great trip in and of itself. The parking lot is well-marked and there are spots for probably thirty cars. We hiked at the end of December, later in the afternoon and there were maybe five cars there, including ours. The temperature was perfect with the sun on us, but it would be killer in the middle of summer. Before I go any further, I'll confess that we didn't make it to the end of the trail. We got there later than expected and after descended part of the way down to the canyon floor, we understood that if we were to reach the bottom, we'd be coming back up in the twilight. The descent was quite steep and the trail narrow and rocky in parts; it's not dangerous, nor does it require special skill, as we saw a few children accompanying their parents on the arduous return trip. The first half of the trail, if it's all you do, is still enjoyable. Not too much up and down, though the scenery is nice, the air fresh. We stopped for some time under a cliff overhang at the beginning of the descent. A large number of griffons live there and they soar about the canyon. At that point, they'll fly above you no more than a few meters from time to time. I was saddened we weren't able to finish the trail and even if you find yourself short on time (and with permission), I suggest you check out this trail.
