The Trip-Finder, January 1998
The Route: A donkey-supported trip from Huambo into a vast, arid, 10,600-foot-deep canyon, with stops at remote Indian villages and waterfalls, plus a drive over the 14,000-foot Altiplano. The trip takes 11 days.
When to go: May to October
Travel advisory: If possible, avoid the October trip; biting blackflies in the canyon can be voracious at that time of year.
