Meeting time: 6:00am SHARP

Estimated arrival time at the start of the hike: 7:00am

Estimated completion time of the hike: 4:30pm LATEST

The rating of this hike is (6) challenging

We park at the entrance to Lalaja Road and right here, our trek begins. We walk along good road all the way until we reach to a road heading downhill until we eventually reach into the forest. From here, undulating terrain all the way until we reach at the Guanapo river. We take a tributary where there is no fear of deep water swimming whatsoever. This tributary will ultimately reach us to Tombasson. Great  relaxation here.

Departing Tombasson, we take a trail this time and trek through the forest until it gets us back to the Guanapo River. From here, we take the same trail all the way back to our waiting vehicle. One thing to be aware though and that is the hill that we took at the start of the hike is a very steep uphill.....so don't say that you weren't warned.
