Lalaja Waterfall – Hidden in the heights

Lalaja waterfall is by far one of the more beautiful destinations I have be too so far and the journey begins in the deserted Lalaja area.

Exploring Lalaja

Located in the Heights of Guanapo but accessed from the Lalaja south road off the Arima-Blanchisseuse old road is the area known as Lalaja and it is filled with a lot of hidden treasures and remote houses.

The area is a former agricultural settlement, there are still a couple of farms, gardens and housing in the area, but it is mostly deserted.

The road currently is not the best, it is muddy in some place, but cars could still reach to a point.

From the Lalaja South Road you can take the Lalaja Branch Trace to Guanapo or the Lalaja Paria Trail to Brasso Seco.

Of course, driving to these other locations may not be possible.

This road being quiet and barely seeing any kind of traffic is perfect for mountain biking or a nature walk with come incredible views.

The Journey

The drive inside the Lalaja Road if you have a 4×4 will probably take you thirty minutes on the winding dirt road until you reach the Paria Trail junction.

Some cars can make it, but the road is currently muddy, so it may be best to park before the bridge.

If can drive that far you will see the river at the junction with a little waterfall and parking opposite.

The trail to the Lalaja waterfalls continues along the road passed the Paria Trail, passed the old wooden house with the rusted van in front.

This road will then turn into a winding trail along a benching, crossing different water courses and walking along the edge of some cliffs for most of the hike.

Trail is bushy and covered with leave so pay particular attention to where you are stepping as the area is known for snakes and heavily forested.

Probably about halfway in you will meet a junction where you must make a left turn, fortunately there are orange markers still visible.

Wrong turn

This was my second time visiting the waterfall, the first time I used my gps watch to find it, this time I was following the markers and I missed a turn.

Just before you reach the river there is a fork in the path, you must take the left and climb up to the stone.

But if you do go right, it is pretty much worth it, as you end up on the bottom of the Lalaja waterfall.

Where there is another fall approximately 30 feet in height with a nice deep pool at its base.

If you manage to take the take the right path, in a few minutes you will be welcomed by one of the most amazing views just before hitting the river.

The journey from the junction will take you approximately and hour and half at moderate walking speed.

There is a little flat spot where you get an amazing view of the probably fifty feet drop and cascading falls known as Lalaja.

Lalaja Waterfall

Below the falls is a perfect pool for chilling, although the water is like ice cold it is amazing especially when the sun is over head.

This pool is mostly four to five feet in depth, with only little deep spot possible seven feet.

But you can walk across most of the pool and push across onto the rocks under the fall.

When the lighting is right it would be the perfect place for those pictures, with crystal clear water and rainbows coming of the waterfall.

Just make sure to look out for the tadpoles and crabs.

Getting To: La Laja – Trail Pace

La Laja is a former agricultural settlement in the Heights of Guanapo (located in this region). There are still a couple farms and houses in this area but it is mostly deserted now. Even though it’s located in the Guanapo Valley, it is accessed via the La Laja South Road which is off the Arima-Blanchisseuse Road (the intersection is at this point).  The road is generally dilapidated but it is still traversable by a good working car. However, try not to turn off onto the La La Branch Trace (at this point) unless you have an excellent 4X4 vehicle. 

Hikes that originate in La Laja are La Laja Branch Trace, La Laja – Paria Trail, 
Guanapo Gorges, La Laja Waterfall, Sombasson Waterfall, Morne Bleu, and El Cerro del Aripo. As there aren’t much vehicles here, mountain biking could also be done. The La-Laja Branch Trace could take you to the Heights of Guanapo Road while the La-Laja Paria Trail crosses the ridge to Brasso Seco.  

As you would expect, there isn’t any public transport to La Laja so you would most likely have to drive your own vehicle. To get to La Laja, proceed north along the Arima-Blanchissuese Road from the Eastern Main Road. Continue past the community of Verdant Vale (also know as Temple Village) and Scott’s Quarry on the left. After that quarry, you will go around two hairpin bends (U-bends) and then you will eventually come upon La Laja South Trace (on the right) as shown below. 

Surprisingly, a street sign was recently erected (shown below) so that should make recognizing the the turnoff a lot simpler than before.

In Karakalpakstan, during a raid, an environmental control inspector died in an accident

In Karakalpakstan, during a raid, an environmental control inspector died in an accident. This is reported by the UPL correspondent.

According to reports, the Ecology Committee of the Muynak region received a call. The inspectors were informed that unidentified people were illegally hunting near the Aral Sea. Inspectors T.Tileumuratov, Sh.Torezhanov and A.Mambetnazarov went to the call. On the way, the inspectors got into an accident. It is noted that the accident occurred due to damage to the wheels of the car.

Inspector Sh.Torezhanov died at the scene of the incident from his injuries. Due to the fact that there is no mobile communication at the scene, the inspectors were unable to call for help. The nearest settlement is located at a distance of 45 km from the place of the accident. T. Tileumuratov decided not to waste time and went to the nearest settlement for help. His partner A. Mambetnazarov could not move because of his injuries and for this reason remained at the scene. When T. Tileumuratov reached the settlement, it became known that the citizens did not have a car. T. Tileumuratov called Muynak and called for help. The cause of the incident is currently under investigation.
