Hike - Santo Domingo Tomaltepec
9:00 AM
Oaxaca Lending Library
Today’s outing will be a trek that begins on a country road and then devolves into a footpath in a mountain valley near Santo Domingo. We will begin at the upper of two lakes which provide water for the town and wend our way gradually uphill into a wooded valley. No archeological gems or great vistas today; just a very pleasant walk with nature. Be forewarned that there are twenty stream crossings along the way, so wear shoes that can get wet and still be comfortable to walk in, or wear sandals and splash merrily through the water! After the hike, we will stop for lunch at a restaurant in Tule. There is a 20 peso charge to hike through communal property.
