Sunday 23: Portete, Santa Marianita and El Chorro

We will visit Portete de Tarqui, where you will see a memorial in honor to Batalla de Tarqui (27 de Febrero de 1829), where Grancolombians attacked Peruvians during their incursions; Gran Colombia won the battle and it was very important for the ending of that war, that had started after Independience wars. There, you have a beautiful view of part of Yunguilla valley with GirĂ³n town. After some minutes, we will walk downhill in direction to Santa Marianita, through a beautiful landscape; an easy 5.5 mile hike. Then, we will visit El Chorro -a waterfall with more than 200 feet from the top and take a lunch at La Loma Restaurante, a nice little place in the area.
We will use buses and mixtos as transportation.

Following, a few photos:
