Wir (56, 55, 24 und 19 Jahre alt) unternahmen die Tour im Rahmen unseres letzten gemeinsamen Familienurlaubes. Hier meine ausführliche Beschreibung mit (hoffentlich sinnvollen) Tipps:
Reisezeit: unbedingt in der Trockenzeit (Dezember-April)! Wir waren hier Anfang März und es regnete täglich, teils wie aus Eimern. Entsprechend schlammig waren die Wege.
Mitnehmen: feste Wanderschuhe!!!, warme Sachen (auch Handschuhe, Mütze), Regencape, Inlet für die abgenutzten Schlafsäcke, Handtuch, Waschzeug, WC-Papier, ausreichend Snacks für unterwegs, Wasserflasche, Beschäftigung für die Zeit im Camp (z.B. Kindle), Blasenpflaster, ggf. Ibuprofen und Schlafmittel. Sonnenschutz und Mückenspray haben wir nicht gebraucht.
Organisation: Wir haben die Tour online bei Guías de Alturas gebucht (ca. 200 E p.P.), Bezahlung vor Ort in bar. Inklusive sind Mahlzeiten, Guides mit Pack-Mulis, Übernachtung, Schlafsäcke. Treffpunkt ist am Eingang des Nationalparks gegen 19 Uhr. Es gibt ein gemeinsames Abendessen mit Briefing (englisch), erste Übernachtung im Zelt am NP-Eingang oder in einem 4-Bett-Zimmer mit Bad in einem Guesthouse in der Nähe (Aufpreis). Die beiden anderen Übernachtungen erfolgen im Camp La Compartición, entweder im Zelt oder in einem Schlafsaal (bei uns letzteres wegen des starken Regens). Es gibt eine Bretterbude als WC (natürlich ohne Wasser) und in ca. 100 m Entfernung eine Trinkwasserquelle, wo man sich auch notdürftig waschen kann (kalt!). Unterwegs gibt es einige Quellen, bei denen man die Wasserflasche auffüllen kann und einige Rastplätze.
Tour: Die meisten laufen, aber man kann sich auch im Muli nach oben tragen lassen (nur den letzten Kilometer zum Gipfel muss man selbst laufen). Bei der 2-Tages-Tour geht es am ersten Tag um 6 Uhr vom BaseCamp (1.100m) nach La Compartición (2.450 m) und am 2. Tag gegen 4 Uhr zum Sonnenaufgang auf den Gipfel (3.098m), dann Frühstück in La Compartición und Abstieg zum Eingang des NP. Wir entschieden uns für die 3-Tages-Tour. Am ersten Tag 5.30 Uhr Frühstück (Kaffee, Bananen, Muffins), 6.30 Uhr Start, ca. 15 Uhr Ankunft in La Compartición, warme Suppe, Abendessen. Am zweiten Tag Frühstück, gegen 9 Uhr Aufbruch zum Gipfel, Rückkehr nach La Compartición gegen 12 Uhr, Mittag- und Abendessen. Am dritten Tag 5.30 Uhr Frühstück, 6 Uhr Abstieg, 12.30-14 Uhr Ankunft (je nach Kondition), leichtes Mittagessen.
Weg: Netto sind es ca. 2.000 Höhenmeter, Brutto eher 2.500-3.000. Der höchste Punkt am ersten Tag liegt bei etwa 2.750m, beim Abstieg nach La Compartición ging es aber auch nicht konstant bergab. Die ersten 4-5 km des Weges sind recht harmlos, danach wird es steil, dazu kommen Schlamm, Geröll, Wurzelwerk und Felsen. Stellenweise ist der Weg wegen des Schlamms nicht begehbar, die Umleitung daneben nicht ungefährlich. Der Aufstieg von La Compartición zum Gipfel und zurück ist dagegen relativ harmlos. Der Abstieg am letzten Tag war für mich das Schlimmste, u.a. weil der Weg nach den Regenfällen in noch schlechterer Verfassung war als beim Aufstieg.
Allgemeines: Man sollte Spanisch-Kenntnisse mitbringen, denn die Guides sprechen gar kein Englisch. Man sollte auch keine allzu großen Erwartungen an die Aussicht haben: meist sind die Wege von Vegetation oder Gestein begrenzt, nur hin und wieder öffnet sich ein Blick auf die Umgebung. Der Gipfel selbst ist meist in Wolken gehüllt. Die Vegetation ist beeindruckend, Tiere sind man eher nicht: hin und wieder ein paar Vögel und wir wurden von einem Hund begleitet, der allerdings deutlich schneller war als wir. Die Guides waren mäßig enthusiastisch: sie waren freundlich, das Essen war in Ordnung und ausreichend. Das Gepäck wurde von den Mulis getragen. Prinzipiell bestand die Möglichkeit, sich auch als Wanderer vom Muli tragen zu lassen (z.B. bei Verletzung oder Erschöpfung), aber da die Guides an den wirklich gefährlichen Stellen des Weges meist weit weg waren, war dies eher Theorie. Ich war deshalb wirklich froh, den Abstieg völlig erschöpft, aber mit heilen Knochen überstanden zu haben. Das ist ein Grund für den Punktabzug, der andere ist die Behandlung der Mulis. Zaumzeug und Sattel saßen schlecht, was regelmäßig für Abschürfungen sorgte. Auch lahmende Tiere mussten noch Gepäck oder Personen schleppen. Also nichts für mitfühlende Tierfreunde!

Guys, this is the highest mountain in the Caribbean which is not an easy task. But the reward is great and you have a nice feeling after such a nice adventure. We did this with Guias de Alturas. A solid mountain guiding company based in DR. They were extremely responsible and provide every single detail and info about it.

A friend and i booked to climb Pico Duarte through Guías de las altura, contacting them through email 3 days before the trip. Joel was brilliantly responsive and quickly told us everything we needed to know about the trip in advance and what to expect. Everything was done on good faith which was nice and we agreed to pay $250 USD per person for there assistance with the Trip (Guides, mules, a tent, food and coffee up and down) which we paid up front and I think this was value for money

A few things worth pointing out. This is a relentless trail path to the top with steady incline all the way, it is tough on the legs and and i am sore but there is nothing technical at all here and bar the small rocky outcrop at the top you will not have to use your hands. I would liken it to walking up ben Nevis by the mountain path....Twice.

We arrived the day before and were kindly allowed to use a room in someones home the night before before being met by Giovanni at 0530 to start our climb. He arrived with his mule palermo and we duly followed them all day stopping maybe every 1 and a half hours before reaching the summit at around 1630 making it back down to camp 1 at about 1800 for a welcome meal by the fire. we left at 0700 the following day and got back to base camp at 1330 feeling pretty battered. Our guides spoke no English so do not expect any commentary on the area or wildlife on the way up but they do what's advertised which is show you the way up, lug your kit, feed and water you and prepare your tent. They were always looking out for us to the point that we tipped the $20 USD each on completion

I loved the following.

- Experiencing a bit of the real Dominican Republic away from the beach resorts and luxury, having no mobile signal. - ; loved the ambience of the local folk, the local food and the hospitality offered to us 2 gringos

- A Tough walk. I consider myself a keen UK fell walker. (Hadrian's wall, Yorkshire dales, 3 peaks, Pen y fan, most of the lakes, isle of skye) this was by far the toughest days walking of any of these, it is a relentless trudge to the summit with no scrambling or exposure.

- A whistling bird that you could hear most of the way up, sounded like the mocking jay from hunger games, no idea what it was. Pino our guide told us (i think)

- The local countryside and views

- A Beer in the hotel eventually at puerto plata

Advice.

- Take plenty of water. The stops say they have water but not all of them did and we ran out a couple of times

- Take plenty of supplementary snacks. Your guides will provide some food;, rice egg, coffee and the odd pineapple but you will need more than this to get to the top.

- A spanish phrase book if your spanish is as poor as ours

picoduartetours.com; consigliatissimo per la salita al Pico Duarte. Abbiamo contattato Luis Franco (proprietario di Pico Duarte Tuor), comunicato con WathsApp dall'Italia, in modo da trovare tutto pronto una volta arrivati in Repubblica Dominicana. Il trekking che ci ha organizzato Luis è stato perfetto, curato in ogni dettaglio (la tenda per dormire al campo base, i sacchi a pelo, tutti i pasti, anche quello al sacco da mangiare durante la salita e discesa, naturalmente i muli, per zaino e persone). La salita non è da sottovalutare, un minimo di allenamento è utile, e di attrezzatura, scarpe da trekking, zaino piccolo da portare con sè, bastoncini da trekking (che ci sono stati forniti da Luis), cappello, crema solare, occhiali da sole, qualcosa di pesante per la notte al campo base.
E' stata una faticosa ma bellissima esperienza! Grazie anche a Luis.

I arrived at the trailhead with the intention of climbing to the summit but a lot of arrangements had to be made first. I teamed up with a German guy who spoke English and we booked a guide and his donkey! It was a two-day trek and we reached the summit at 0600hrs because that was the best time to witness the glorious sunrise. Sadly, the clag was down and we couldn't see a bloody thing. On the way down, I suffered an accident when part of the track gave way and I fell about six feet, landing on my side and back and as I found out much later, I'd broken three ribs. I couldn't walk so they got me back to base on the donkey and I swear that I remember every step that the bloody animal took. A painful experience but one that I wouldn't have changed for the world!

Para amantes de la naturaleza y en buen estado de forma, subir el pico Duarte y combinarlo con caminatas por el Valle del Tetera, es una gran experiencia dentro de este maravillosos país, que muchos sólo conocen ,por los resorts todo incluido, que no son un fiel reflejo de las maravillas que ofrece RD, principalmente su gente,la del día a día, que no está en contacto con el turismo ni espera nada material del extranjero, pura amabilidad y nobleza. También se puede subir en mula alpico, cada cual con su forma física...

Rising 10,000 feet high, Pico Duarte is the highest mountain in the Caribbean. Getting to the summit is a demanding experience that will change you for life. Most people use the Manabao Route, a 29 mile hike (roundtrip) with 8000 ft altitude gain, where the hiker go through several ecosystems, from the tropical forest to Pine Forests, to Alpine Grass highlands. Above 6000 feet temperature gets cold, getting below freezing at nights.

The trip by this route is typically done in three days. In order to preserve the National Park, authorities require you to use the services of a local guide. Hiring a professional adventure outfitter will make your experience more enjoyable. I recommend Guias de Alturas, a small, solid group of guides with extensive experience in the dominican outdoors and a strong mountaineering background both locally and internationally. This guys really love the mountains.

They take good care of the customer and provide a lot of information before the actual trip, which helps you prepare in advance and provide peace of mind by knowing all you can know before the actual adventure. They also have a strong bond with the local community around Pico Duarte, so they can use the best local guides and mule drivers and the trips support a better way of life for the local population.

With incredible mountain views and a spirit of adventure, climbing Pico Duarte could easily be the greatest thing to do while you’re at the Dominican Republic.

This is a demanding hike, even for experienced hikers in good shape (though you can always go up by mule), but well worth it. With morning temperatures of 7C on our trip, the roaring evening fire at La Compartición high camp was very welcome. We went with @PicoDuarteTours, which takes care of all the logistics ( from having a paramedic accompany the group down to the s’mores for the campfire) at a very reasonable price—and their very responsive team was ready for anything. A fabulous experience, and an especially great option for hikers looking for a challenge during Northern Hemisphere off-season.

If you're used to hiking mountains every weekend, climbing ropes, rocks and bushwacking, this hike is NOT difficult. It's a National Park with path the whole way! It's mandatory to have a guide. We opted to rent mules to ride on the extra rocky parts. You could probably do this hike in a day. However it is fun to spend the night in the house and then watch the sunrise in the morning. It didn't take us long to come down the mountain, maybe 6 hours. We spend only one night at campsite.
