... upstream along the river. It was a hot cloudless day and not too much wind making for a hot day of hiking. After about three hours of hiking we found a nice shady spot to take our shoes off, have a snack and chill out for 30 minutes. We continued on through a small village called Itualo past the church and school and then to the base of the canyon cliffs where we would make the gruelling 700m vertical climb up out of the canyon. We followed the sandy, dry switchbacks up ...

... to suit every budget, Some sleep in tents, others in dorms, and we see some 'Hobbit Holes' being constructed as well. We opted for a chalet with hot and cold water as well as a wood stove! All very comfortable. The atmosphere at the hostel brought us back to when we went through Europe, about 40 years ago!. People, young and not so young, from all walks of life sharing stories of where they're heading or answering questions about places they'd ...
