La Escondida

English // Class: 3 A III

In the South of Nuevo León, 177 kms from Monterrey, in the quiet municipality of Iturbide, one of Emotion Team’s most recent discoveries awaits you.  La Escondida is an extraordinary waterfall, the highest in Nuevo León, which we will skirt with 10 rappels and a descent of more than 400 meters.

On the way out of the canyon, we will walk along the path, admiring the scenery and stopping at the Cueva del Gato

We recommend to take an other trip to Los Enigmas, Pozo del Gavilán or to kayak on the Laguna de Labradores.
