El Cerro del Aripo

El Cerro del Aripo


This is certainly a hike for your bucket list. Once it is accomplished, there is a sense of great pride.

Brace for a long day of uphill and downhill hiking to the tallest peak of Trinidad and Tobago, El Cerro del Aripo (3,085 feet/940 meters). Firstly trek along asphalt road, to Lalaja Road and oversee the Central Plains and other mountains in the vicinity. There are a couple of refreshing river streams on the path. 

At Lalaja Road, veer on dirt trail for constant uphill trekking into forest to a "T- Junction" then walk on a very narrow trail throughout the journey. Thick vegetation of natural rain-forest creates a coolness which is certainly welcomed trekking along ridges and undulating terrain to the summit. Unfortunately at this elevation, there are absolutely no views. However, lush vegetation encircles and a sense of accomplishment satisfies the spirit.
