About the event

The hike from La Neveria to Latuvi takes place in an area of the Sierra Norte called the  Pueblos Mancomunados, located approximately 56 Km (35 miles) east of Oaxaca city. This is a region of communally-owned land shared by the residents of eight mountain villages. In recent decades a concerted effort has been made to conserve the forests and promote eco-tourism. All of the villages have a tourist office and cabins for overnight guests. There is a per person admission fee and a group local guide fee for hikes or mountain bike rides on the trails that connect the various towns. Do bring cash as well as small change to cover these fees and use of sanitary faciities. Visitors are asked to dress in earth tones (green, brown and blue) and to avoid other colors, particularly bright ones.

The high country of the Sierra Norte catches moisture that flows in from the Gulf of Mexico, which produces lush vegetation in the cloud forests. A great variety of bromeliads, ferns, mosses and orchids grow wild in the woods. Visitors should be aware that it is usually about 20 degrees Fahrenheit (6.6 degrees Celsius) cooler in the mountains than in Oaxaca city, so taking a light jacket and gloves is recommended. Fog and drizzle are also common in the mountains in the mornings, even during the dry season, so light rain gear is also a good idea. There is some steep terrain. Bring a sack lunch to eat on the trail.

Time frame:  8:30 depart  / 10:30 arrive La Neveria / 1:00 hike halfway point & lunch on the trail / 3:00 arrive Latuvi / 3:15 board bus for Oaxaca / 5:30 return to Oaxaca.
