Description
Waypoints (24)

Esta ruta conecta dos cerros muy importantes y poco conocidos en el sur de Cuenca: el Cerro Verde (cuya cima se conoce como "Boquerón") con restos arqueológicos muy importantes y poco estudiados, y el cerro Monjas en el sector Guzho donde se encuentra una terraza en la ladera que data de tiempos preincaicos, así como espectaculares vistas panorámicas. El nivel de dificultad de esta ruta es medio y no se recomienda hacerlo con niños porque hay secciones que se deben caminar a lo largo del camino. Si desea evitarlo, puede viajar solo la primera mitad de la ruta.
