Day 1 Our driver will drop us off at the Manabao swamp, where we'll begin the first stage of our hiking route. On this first trail, of about 4 kilometres (2.5 miles), we'll traverse the green and lush jungle. We'll take a small stop around halfway through the trail, in the middle of the jungle, to regain our strength before continuing onwards. The first day of hiking will end at La Compartición, a mountain encampment situated around 2450 metres (8000 feet) above sea level. Day 2 After eating a wholesome breakfast at camp, we'll start the ascent towards Pico Duarte. This trail is around 13 kilometres (8 miles). Of course, along the way, we'll be taking multiple stops to have something to eat and to take in the pine, ebony and mahogany forests! The effort will without a doubt be worth it, as we'll climb to the top of Pico Duarte, which is situated 3087 metres (10,127 feet) above sea level, making it the highest mountain in the Antilles. Once we've arrived, we'll enjoy some of the most extraordinary panoramic views. From the summit of Pico Duarte, we'll return to the encampment to have dinner and spend the night. Day 3 After having breakfast at the camp, we'll hike from there back to the Manabao swamp. Here we'll have a warming picnic-type lunch and then after, make the journey back to the meeting point in Jarabacoa. We're expected to arrive back in the late afternoon. Accommodation and Food This hiking tour includes 2 nights of accommodation at a mountain encampment situated in the area surrounding Pico Duarte.
