Description

This 3-day hike across the Trail of the clouds is a trip full of strong sensations: effort, tiredness and the amazing landscapes with opposite features. You will also enjoy the contact with mountain people, bad and good weather, cold and hot temperatures, the clouds and the satisfaction of fulfilling the challenge.

It is a hiking adventure for those with a good physical training that are capable of supporting an average of 7 to 8 hours of walking in the mountains, with a altitude change of more than 900 meters.

During these 3 days on the Trail of the clouds you will discover, at a moderate step, the spectacular Quebrada del Toro with a stunning landscape of Lerma Valley and the Quebrada de San Lorenzo.

I suggest to have previous mountain hike and wild camp experience and knowledge. It will be an experience full of landscape changes and flora, in a constant connection with nature.
