From outside number
19 or 21 walk along past Patricio's Restaurant,
bear left and take the tarmac track that climbs
underneath the high walls of a new house. This
passes the sports area and curves around to reveal
a hidden valley. Cross the stream and follow
the narrow road past some wooden houses (Machu
Pichu) until the "small" freestanding pinnacle
Turn left at concrete track junction -
1.4 miles (2.2km)
Follow the concrete track steeply past a "rock
wall" (ignore path at the sharp bend) to it's
end. The continuing path starts descends just
beyond a small finca (currently being restored).
Follow the feint track down to a cultivated
area and keep to the top side of the "field"
by bearing right.
Rejoin the track which now drops steeply into
a small rocky valley which is followed to its
Junction at 2.4 miles (3.8km) - left back to
village, right for full circuit
If continuing on the full circuit take the left
junction at the next obvious fork, and avoid
further right turns until you cross the stream
once more (this section can be a bit overgrown
A short but steep uphill section at the other
side of the stream leads quickly to another junction,
take a sharp left turn here, then avoid the next
left turn (bear right).
The track now contours around the hill and passes
a water deposit and well tended crops.
Cross over a chain (this is just to stop vehicles),
ignore any turns off the main track until
you meet a road.
Turn left here and at edge of village either
turn will do, the left turn will take you along
the road at the back of the village and back
to Patricio's Restaurant.
