  • I traveled the mountain with a local guide. We were almost alone. The place (cafés and services were already deserted) the place is amazing in its beauty, with a waterfall, marked by a lovely forest, but the walk was very dangerous, due to a heavy fog that made it steep on the slopes. It is advisable to visit with a local, because you can easily lose your thick thicket.
