Chirripo Trekking Expedition © by OA:modio

We will take you to the Uran Chirripo trekking trip, which is the less commercial entrance to Chirripo, the highest peak of Costa Rica. With huge tall oak trees, full of bromeliads and moss, many different types of birds and animals, there are many things to see. Once we cross the treeline, we will enter to the Paramo (Moorland) with a whole new different type of vegetation, and amazing views of glacier formation lakes and tall pinnacles and spires. Hiking in the continental divide ridge will take us to the Cerro Chirripo, from where we start getting down by the regular trail.
