You'll enjoy a guided 'silent' hike through the mountains around the Magic Town of Creel with a Raramuri Indian guide. Your guide will not speak English, though he does speak Spanish. The idea though is not to talk at all on this Silent Hike, but rather to experience the beauty and nature of this amazing region in the same silence that the Raramuri Indians do. The Indians do not speak much, not even amongst themselves, but instead simply walk through the world as a part of it, rather than in opposition to it as most cultures around the world tend to do. They absorb, and become a part of the nature around them. On this hike, you too will allow yourself, through the artful practice of silence, to immerse yourself into the world of the Raramuri Indian as you learn to glide through the forest and hills as they do; using an easy to moderate pace your Indian guide will lead you through unknown sections of the San Ignacio Ejido where you will find peace, tranquility and maybe even a bit more of your true self before it is over.
A trail snack will be provided, but do bring your own lunch along with you for this hike.
I am the owner of The 3 Amigos and an historian guide who knows all about the Copper Canyon, the country of Mexico, and the Rarámuri Indians of this region. I have lived in the Copper Canyon for over 20 years. I built the gazebo in the main plaza in Creel when I was 18 years old, and have guided countless documentary and film crews through the Copper Canyon throughout the years. I am also a photographer and have permanent photography exhibits featured in the Magic Town of El Fuerte museum, and the Magic Town of Batopilas museum.
You'll be hiking through the San Ignacio Valley outside of the Magic Town of Creel, along trails that wander through forests, along small cliff edges with a view of the Conchos River that runs across the Continental Divide, through the Valley of the Monks and past Lake Arareko. However, we could do a different version of this hike, depending on the weather and ability of the group.

This experience goes rain or shine and even in the snow. The changing weather elements make this experience more interesting.
