Co-FTF with OusKonNé !

Finding the proper access to the muddy trail was something like a challenge by itself . On the day when we arrived in Monteverde, we could not figure it out and passed just aside of it as there was a big ICE truck parked just in front of the dirty road.
Lets just say that Hotel Belmar is not far from the proper trailhead !

Anyway, two days later by this morning, we easily found that trailhead. We were deeply minded to go up to this exceptional cache location.

What a great way to feel the exotic of the cloudforest ! All the time we were surrounded by a constant mist.

Up to the antennas, we just followed a recently reworked dirty road. It was very muddy but it was also pure fun for the three of us (photos)! Just wished we could have brought our hiking boots here in Costa Rica .

Once we finally arrived at the top, the cache was easily spotted . That is a great reward for an ascension at 1840m! We could just imagine the view from here as we were right in the middle of the clouds. Heavy winds too!

Total round trip took us a mere 2:30 hours for hiking 6.2 km with a rise of 400m. Highly recommended experience.

infoThis is the original cache type consisting, at a bare minimum, a container and a log book. Normally you'll find a tupperware container, ammo box, or bucket filled with goodies, or smaller container ("micro cache") too small to contain items except for a log book.
