I really enjoyed reading all your stories (hi Humberto). I'm dominican, and for me, visit at least once in a lifetime Pico Duarte is an important thing to do. I'ts awsome to know how many foreigners have cliembed our mountain and many dominicans refuse to do so.
What can I say about that trip? well, I've fell in love with Pico Duarte the very moment I put my feet on that path... it's a religious experience... you feel a very close relationship with nature, God and yourself. For me (and believe me, I can write about this for a long time, being this one of my favorite's subjects) it is an adicction. And please, don't take that "atajo" from Aguita FrÌa to Tetero Valley, it's horrible! If you need to know more, what to bring, how to get there, anything, just e-mail me.
