From almost anywhere in El Valle, you can see the Sleeping Indian Girl. Easily recognizable, she just gives that feeling of calm as she rests there. No hiking necessary! However, you can hike up to the top, walk along the ridge and see the beauty of the Valley.

From town this is a pleasant hike. From the top you see the sleeping girl. These mountain profiles are so common. We have seen them everywhere, however this one is uncanny. From the top you can observe the WHOLE crater that the town sits in, and it is amazing. This was at one time a whopper of a volcano. The... More

Agree with other reviews that its not properly marked but do-able. You can really only get lost once whether to go left or right after the Frog Rock but there are locals that live in the mountains always commuting up and down. If you feel confused, take this time to sit, relax enjoy the natural sound track. You are bound... More

Just in awe of the story and scenery. Love this country. Would come back in a heartbeat. Where we saw the mountain was on the road from the hot spring.

After the second trip to El Valle we managed to find the entrance. Safe to park down the little lane nearby and a nice start on the little concrete path past all the market stalls ( buy some oranges even if its just to reward the lads who bring them down the mountain strapped to their backs like donkeys). A... More

We spent three nights in El Valle de Anton in December 2013. We are a family of four with a 16 year old girl and a 12 year old girl. We love to hike, so we decided to give this hike a try. We had a good map of El Valle de Anton from our bed and breakfast. However, the... More

definitely worth to climb it. not particularly difficult, half-a-day-activity, great views from the top. another plus is that there are different ways to reach the top, so you don't need to go back the same way as you came. A guide is not necessary, to go up you can ask some locals on the street, and to come down you... More

Its interesting to try to decipher the silhouete of the girl in the mountain. Ask locals -they're very helpful.

We hiked up to the top and returned down the same way. It was definitely a challenge to do it as fast as we did, since it was the end of the day. Views from the top were worth the trip. Many people just swim in the pool that is an easy hike in. Like most place, foreigners pay more... More

Great views when you emerge on the summit and a suer hike along the ridge. Best to 'hitch' a lift back down the road to town.
