Day Hike - West Etla Valley
9:00 AM
Oaxaca Lending Library
Description:
The scenic rolling hill country of the western Etla Valley harbors a number of roads and trails which are a delight to hike. This outing starts at a remote spot, follows a pleasant stream down a valley running to the southeast and eventually terminates at the ruins of the monastery in Cuilapam, begun in 1556 but never completed. You will enjoy the serene beauty of this agricultural area and the grace of the monastery ruins. After the hike we will stop for lunch at a restaurant in Cuilapam or Zaachila before returning to Oaxaca.
