I am in good shape and 44 years old. Do NOT take this mountain lightly. It is a 26km hike and they do not count the turns in that calculation. It is likely 30-35km. It is much longer and harder than you would expect from...More
I hiked Pico Duarte with "Guias de Alturas" in August 2017 and the experience couldn´t be better. The weather was perfect and the guides were really kind and really professionals.

Any person (with no major...More
