Las Cascadas MarinkaDecember 1, 2015 in Colombia ⋅ ⛅ 30 °C
Woke up at the crack of dawn for a nice local breakfast and then started a hike, an 'easier' one according to the guide book. 2 hours uphill in the hot, humid jungle later, we finally arrived at the waterfall, La Cascadas Marinka. We did get to see some great views and a toucan and heard a monkey, so it was a good walk and even better to get in the water. The water is freezing cold which feels fantastic and there are some strange gold flakes in it which shine in the sun.
We had a daily menu lunch of chicken in passion fruit sauce or coffee sauce back in the town before heading back down the mountain again, very happy to have made the effort to visit Minca.Read more
