The beautiful is a remote cloud forest isolated from the other cloud forests in Honduras. Some unique endemic species have already been found by scientists and others remain to be discovered. The maximum elevation reaches 2500 meters above sea level surrounded by amazing scenery, dominated by very abrupt topography. Temperatures range between 5 and 25 degrees centigrade. This permanently cloudy area gives a high relative humidity to the top of the mountains, where hundreds of crystalline and pure water creeks are born and where the lush vegetation is decorated with abundant epiphytes. The splendid flora and fauna composition give this park a unique appearance resulting in an unforgettable experience for every visitor.

Tour Itinerary:

Day 1: Transportation in 4x4 vehicle from Tegucigalpa or La Ceiba to Gualaco, at approximately 500m above sea level(4 hrs). This day we walk up to the first camp located near a refreshing crystal water stream (4 hrs.). Gear carried on backpacks by guides and tourists.

Day 2: We enjoy the beautiful scenery that surrounds us, taking a rest at our camping area and going for some hikes along the stream to observe the nature and visit the beautiful waterfall just a few minutes away from our camp.

Day 3: We climb up to the second camp, reaching about 2000 m above sea level (5 hrs.). At this point we start seeing the typical cloud forest vegetation: orchids, bromeliads, mosses, lichens, tree ferns and others. With some luck we will also see the beautiful green toucans, quetzals, and some mammals.

Day 4: We leave most of our gear at the second camp, taking some warm clothes, water, a snack for lunch and our cameras with us to hike on up a steep slope to La Picucha, the top of the mountain (2500m above sea level) (2 hrs.). Here we enjoy the typical dwarf vegetation with its impressive colors. On clear days it is possible to take in a superb 360 degrees panoramic view. It is a Garden of Eden. In the afternoon we hike down back to our first camp (3 hrs.).

Day 5: We walk back down to the starting point (4 hrs.) to return to Tegucigalpa or La Ceiba by car.
