On to "EL CHIFLON" Waterfall - amazing

We left san Cristobal around 11:00 am and headed south to our next

stop. El Chiflon waterfall and from there keep riding to get to "Montebello Lakes"


the road is very curvy and really well mantained, just forget the topes. Topes is a must, is a souvenir, is a blended item with the daily living of the locals.. and what the heck, for the KLR's they are "topes mis guevos", they are like if they does not exists

a short stop to get some bread as snack (after a tope)







From road 190, we took the 101, then after las Rosas, took the 226 road.


a short leg streching stop






the area is still flooded at many road spots that we found ourselves on a part of the road totally blocked by this lagoon

(in the mean time we played some soccer)




So in order to keep going, we needed to take a dirt road detour, but guess what?....

it was gate guarded by the locals and there were a 10 pesos donation in order to let us thru.,,

hey! we needed some dirt road so we pay fast and went! nice, some mud and a single track road... but to short! only a couple miles and there we were again on the tarmac.


in the middle of this picture is a view of the Water Fall el chiflon seen from the road at some 6 miles of distance. The waterfall is massive once being right below, is impresive,




but first we needed some food.
