Day 1 – Hike El Pinovete Trail to a 98-foot Waterfall and Learn to Make Traditional Bread
You will start your Oaxaca hiking journey in Llano Grande with a walk on El Pinovete trail, which leads you to a densely populated forest of pines and oaks. You can breathe in the extraordinary aroma of “poleo”, one of the fascinating local plants. Next, you will reach El Pinovete waterfall, a 98-foot (30-meter) fall that will relax your senses with its roaring water, accompanied by the songs of goldfinch birds.
In the afternoon, you will pay a visit to a local family to learn how traditional bread is made in the Sierra Norte. Finally, you will rest in the evening.
Day 2 – Watch the Sunrise from a Lookout and Walk the Latzi Hroo Lli Trail to Cuajimoloyas
A transport vehicle will pick you up outside your cabin at 5:30 am in order to start your tour to the Amanecer (Sunrise) lookout. It will probably be a chilly morning–make sure you are warmly dressed–but it will be an excellent moment to experience the marvelous early morning. Your senses will feel the peace and energy of the natural environment. Further on, you will arrive to the highest point of the lookout to enjoy one of the nicest sunrises in the world. You will have enough time for pictures, selfies, and contemplation before coming back to town for a warm, cozy, and friendly breakfast prepared by your local host.
Later on, you will continue your path to the Latzi Hroo Lli trail, a route of approximately 5 miles (8 kilometers) that will lead us to the community of Cuajimoloyas. There, you will have lunch and hike to another lookout called Yaa-cuetzi. You will be delighted by the panoramic view of the community. Finally, your Oaxaca Hiking Tour will come to an end as you come back to the city of Oaxaca.
