This was a great day hike, moderately challenging with some steep areas that required use of hands for stability. The views of El Valle were excellent. We stopped for a short swim at a swimming hole below a waterfall on the way down. I was very happy we did the hike.

I locked it in with my beautiful fiancee somewhere on the face of the Sleeping Indian Girl. We went without a tour guide and got a little lost... but we stumbled upon an orange grove and saw some amazing waterfalls and she said 'yes' anyway so totally worth it. Great trails, just know how to get out ahead of time.

This feature is easy to see from many locations in the area and quite evident once it is pointed out. It is similar to sleeping giants, sleeping warriors, etc. that we have seen in many areas of the world. They are always of interest.

This hike was a bit of a climb, with several nice waterfalls and swimming holes near the start of the trail ( good to cool off on your way back) after climbing to the top of the "head" you can transverse along the body of the sleeping Indian girl, making for a wonderful hike and incredible view of El Valle...

It's easy to view from several areas around, just ask some of the locals the best areas to view her from.

My family of four did this hike recently and thoroughly enjoyed the climb, the scenery and the waterfalls along the way. Here are the detailed instructions for getting to the top. From El Valle town, follow the directions to La Piedra Pintada(Petroglyphs). The road pretty much dead-ends at the Petroglyph entrance. Park anywhere on the gravel road by the side... More

You can see from the main street - just barely - as the trees have all grown. Long long hike up and must have a guide. Breathing problems, disabilities it is very difficult.

Just some mountains in the shape of someone sleeping. If you like hiking, you could probably find someone to take you to the top, but it's billed as a long distance view.

Very nice hike along the wall of the old vulcano. From the villeage you can see "Indiana Dormida" resting in the north-east and from the mountain you can see the village and the Pacific ocean. Nice waterfalls along the route. If you want to extend the walk... go to the Cerro La Cruz first and walk from there over the... More

A good hike up to the top. Get to see a great view of the crater and town. There should be a couple of direction signs so you don't take the wrong trail and end up at some bodies house
