I can't say enough about the view on top of Nago Mountain. It's breathtaking. 360 degree views of the island and the water.
Hiking up and down involves several choices of paths, all that seem to lead in the same direction, but offer very different terrain. We opted for a different way down (not through the banana spider infested non-hiking trail jungle that we came up the mountain on), this resulted in more slippery stairs and then walking through a rock ravine that at times had some rice bags in it (for stability?), the ravine kept getting deeper, developing rock walls around us, giving the illusion of an impending flood. Thankfully the water never came, and we made it safely through the slippery trek with no injuries to report (aside from sore muscles)

So glad that I had an opportunity to do this hike before leaving this beautiful island! It would be a shame to have missed this experience and certainly the view!
