“This trail descends gradually along the river through passion fruit trees and tobacco plantations.”— Ken Roberts
On our trip, we started at Collpa Lodge and stayed east of the river until we reached an abandoned tourist pool facility at the confluence of two rivers. After this point, we crossed to the west side of the river and continued for a few miles until we crossed back to the east side of the river by way of a metal cart suspended on a steel cable over the river. We needed to do this because of mudslides, which had made the regular route unsafe.
