    So rise and shine for day 3. I was a bit worn out I have to say. But a good night sleep at this beautiful place does wonder.

    Hotell Samari

    Today we were planing on taking it a bit slower. We are in BaƱos. It's at 1800 m and we are going a bit higher, to around 2300 m. Hopefully we will se a Telipogon or two...

    But on the way up the mountain we climed the steep hillsides looking for flowering orchids.

    Some different Prostachea species grew around 2100 m.

    The mountain is amazingly beautiful.
