Details of the hike

In uncharted territory we will be driving.....very deep into the pine forest in Matura.

When we are parked safely, we will be trekking through pristine and untouched forest for the next 1 hour for the most all along undulating terrain until we eventually come to the upper Matura River. Right on the riverbank where we stand is a long and very beautiful pool ideal for swimming and relaxing. Regardless of the time of day, this very spot is very well shaded throughout. We will spend some time at this spot before we venture onward upstream for a short distance to our preferred pool. Simply majestic at this spot rest assured.

Wear long/short sleeve tops and even sleeveless can be worn..........your choice.

Wear hiking shoes/trainers/sandals with good grips under the soles. No slippers please.
