TRAILS

01

UMBI TRAIL

This is the wildest trail and the most difficult to go through without a guide. Several paths walked by local communities cross each other to finally reach the main road at the height of the rest point,  on the way to the camping site and the thermal area. This 5.4 km trail crosses beautiful forests, with few houses and farmlands, up to a viewpoint on the valley which cut the crater with its small river,  inside the thick forest. After joining the main road,  it comes back to the starting point with the same path as the  Immogil Trail.

This natural hot water area is situated in a green valley surrounded by steep hill slopes, partially covered by eucalyptus, kosso,  and juniper trees.  It consists of three natural warm pools, characterized by different water temperatures  (ranging from  32° to  38° Celcius  Degree).  Before reaching the pools area,  on the left side,  coming from the main path, you will be surprised by a thermal waterfall,  with its natural hot spring water falling down from the slope of the mountain.
