Alejandro de Humboldt National Park Reviews
パラゴアの到着が途中、山中でのバスが故障で４時間遅れで到着で9：３０発のツアーに間に合わずジープをチャター（悪路の為普通の乗用車では行けない）で一時間以上かかり入口に到着、公園入口で現地のガイドを頼み３時間位のコースをハイキング。 途中川を何度か徒歩で渡り、ジャングルを歩くのでハイキングシューズと水の持参がお勧めです。珍しいカタツムリ（世界一小さい）等珍しい生き物をみれる世界遺産の公園。 more »The arrival of Para Gore, the bus in the mountains arrived at 4 hours late due to a malfunction and arrived at the entrance that takes more than one hour in the Jeep Chator (not a normal passenger car because of bad road) in time for the tour of 9:30 departure, I asked for a local guide at the park entrance and hiked the course for three hours. It is recommended to bring hiking shoes and water as you walk through the jungle several times on foot along the river. A World Heritage park where rare snails (the smallest in the world) are seen as rare creatures.
