Looks like good hiking weather. But be ready for possible rain later. 

We did this ‘mystery hike’ in the opposite direction last May. More up, less down this time.

M DMMC

See graph below. We’ll probably hike about 4-5 hours, including lunch/breaks. Occasional narrow paths over steep drops. Some loose, stoney ground. Mostly well-shaded. Up 900m, down 300m, in approx. 9 kms. Mostly gentle uphill after the first steep 1 km.

Some car shuffling necessary. Unless some strong-kneed fast hikers want to do a 900m up/down ‘there-and-back-again’ hike to the peak (as the 2 leaders did today, in 5 hours) – please inform leader at the meeting point if you’re up for this option.

This time we’ll start at the low end (right) and finish high (left).

  1. Hello.

    I’m a solo Canadian travellor looking to go on a tough trek with locals. I would love to June you this Sunday June 4th. I am planning on taking an uber and meeting you at the susco station. I don’t need my own vehicle after that do I? Please let me know.

    Looking forward to trekking with you this Sunday.

    Hannah

    • Hi Hannah. Normally no problem to catch a lift but we can’t guarantee. See you Sunday.
