One-of-a-kind rainforest climb

My wife and I did this climb a couple days after a large rainstorm which lasted the better part of a day. It was a very muddy climb but I would always expect it to be that way... read more

My girlfriend and I decided to do this hike during an afternoon visit to Nevis whilst working aboard a cruise ship. We had made several calls to this port previously and had decided it was time we venture up the infamous peak of Nevis. The hike itself was enjoyable, however if you are looking for a scenic mountain hike this... More

I loved climbing this mountain because its just perfect for getting exercise . But you have to be prepared so bring water , hats , extra sunscreen and a guide and you will be prepared for anything! And remember that when you get to the top it will be so rewarding!

Baba & Nichael were our guides. Meet at the Gingerland police station... Quite a rough road to the high point of the car track. Hot and humid in the forest, plus occasional rain. It would be very tricky to keep to the route without a guide and some significant drop offs through the undergrowth. Many, many fixed ropes which were... More

A group of 10 of us had a guided hike. We kept a easy to moderate pace, and made it without too much struggle. It was a very clear day and incredibly beautiful all the way up. When you make it empty and fill your water bottle. The water from the "source" tastes amazing.

After reading several reviews about whether to take a guide or not I decided to give it a go without. My nephew (19) and I (40) started off in the morning and we are in average shape. The signs behind the Gingerland Police station point you in the right direction, but you've got to pay attention and look for them.... More

First, went online to see a few folks say that one does not need a guide on this hike. On what planet? Being in good shape and with my brother in law who is also a big hiker, we figured guide was optional. Wrong. Reggie, our guide, is awesome and instrumental in our success AND enjoyment in getting to the... More

We hiked with Gailey. He did a great job as a guide. I can see where some may want to save a few bucks and try to hike it alone, but I would recommend paying the fee for the guide. They know the trail inside and out and can add a lot of color to your hike. We had clouds... More

We started near Peak Haven (after ignoring warnings from both resort staff and our taxi driver not to do this without a guide). Coming up on the Peak Haven side, there's what looks like a trail heading straight up the mountain right before the Peak Haven parking lot. That's not the trail - ignore it, walk through the Peak Haven... More

This is a tough hike on steep, muddy trails with ropes to hold onto. Trails are easy to follow. Bring snacks and plenty of water. Do you need a guide? Locals and inexperienced hikers will tell you that you do. And, if you get a good guide, you will have someone to point out and tell you about the local... More
