We will pick you up from your hostel between 7:10 to 7:30 am, make sure you bring something to read or write because the trip will last an average of 7 to 8 hours, (in favorable conditions). You will have some 10-15 minute stops in the route to stretch the legs and once arrived at Santa Teresa, we will have a delicious lunch. We will arrive at the hydroelectric station and we will start the trek that will last an average of 2 to 3 hours (12 km). This walk will be next to the train tracks and we recommend you to take a flashlight since you are probably walking in the dark as far as the town of Aguas Calientes.
