Where do I start? This is by far the most difficult trek I have ever done in my life and so rewarding to the end. The first time I read on a blog about this trek, I was really fascinated by the indigenous community experience, the wilderness jungle trek, the breathtaking landscapes and the mystical cultural vibe that comes with it. Wiwa tour was recommended to offer such a unique experience so I didn’t think twice and chose them. Was the best choice! Why? Lovely tour guides Jose Luis, Alberto and Victor…these guys are amazing people…fun, down to earth and they hiking super powers!!! Have to mention the sweet, humble, friendly and the best cooks we had in the tour: Sandra and José Luis (no. 2 😆). We did the 4 days tour and it was challenging but doable. Early morning rises at 4.30 in the first 2 days and last day lucky us…5.30:))). The group was so diverse but we were all like a community and having lots of fun!!! We were lucky to have the camping place for ourselves!!!whereas with other tours you get to sleep with other hundreds of people so, it felt like a family with our group!!! At the end I was so exhausted, but so happy to have done it!!! Thanks once again wiwa people for doing this!!!
