Today, it is one of the most sought-after hiking destinations in the region.

At Trail Adventours, the Mt. CincoPicos trip is done as a day-hike. The trail difficulty is rated five out of ten, with ten being the hardest, and can definitely pose a challenge even to seasoned mountaineers.

The name of Mt. Cinco Picos was derived from its five beautiful peaks that many mountaineers admire today.
