Macajuel River Hike

Yesterday I went on a hike to a place called macajuel pool. To get there you must swim and hike down the madamas river through some incredible gorges, where the water is so deep that you cannot swim down to touch the river bed . Above is a picture of of one of the people who was on the hike with me swimming down a gorge with his bag.

We drove in along the road as far as we could before starting to walk. on the way ,I took this picture of a shinny we saw many of these on the hike but I did not take photographs of the others.
After that we saw a mapepire in the path .It was about 3 feet . I also got several photographs of it. after a long time hiking we finally reached macajuel pool. We had to jump off a waterfall to get there.If you wish to go get in touch with Carl Fitzjames at the Brasso Seco Paria Site
