Fun but wet hike to the top, beautiful view of the dormant crater. Lovely lush foliage and flowers. Recommend guide for history, folklore, plant identification and meaning of Native writings found on rocks. Definitely worth it. Wear shoes to manuver in slick areas. Wet but not cold.

If you see it from the right angle its a fun view. I didnt climb it though. Its a very long and steep walk to the top.

This is about one and a half walk depending how fast you are the scenic view and the appreciation of the sleeping Indian then down again remember there are some stops in the way.

There are a couple of ways to get up there. The normal entry location will charge you a couple of dollars to get in, it's cheap so don't worry, You got bathrooms right in the entrance as well. This is not a súper hard hike. But since it does start on a climb, take your time and go at your... More

My daughter and I did a "self-hike" up to the summit of the India Dormida. Beautiful views, worth it, but it is challenging. You must be in great shape, love hiking, bring lots of water for hydration, and have 4-5 hours to explore and take in the sights.

Despite broke Spanish knowledge, me, my wife and two year old daughter in the backpack managed to climb up the sleeping indian girl by ourselfes. You will break a beat of sweat or two but the view from up there is recommendable. We met a nice group of panamanian young people on our way up who were out for the... More

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.
