Seru Jamanika

(0 votes)
  • Difficulty: difficult
  • Terrain: Hilly, Rough / sharp
  • Total distance (km): 7.5
  • Duration (hours): 3.5


Hike from the parking place of Kokomo Beach at Vaersenbay we walk to the Seru Jamanika. Seru is the local word for mountain. We don't go to the top completely because that part is not easily accessible but we will reach a height of about 90 meters from where there is a nice view over the surroundings.

Highlights of this trip:

  • Nice nature in the area of Malpais (former plantation)
  • Remains of two indigo tank systems
  • View over the lake that disappeared (Lago Disparsé)
  • View from the side of the Seru Jamanika

We park the cars in the parking lot of Kokomo Beach. From there we cross the road and walk through a dry (most of the time) saliña (saltpan) to Hofi Malpais (former plantation). We walk over an old dam and visit the two systems of indigo tanks. There is also a pos (waterplace) nearby where we can see water birds and sometimes a local deer.

We continue our walk in the direction of Seru Jamanika. The climb is mostly gradually but sometimes a bit steep especially near the highest point that we will reach. There is a good chance that we will have birds of prey overhead. After a rest at the highest point we descend (sometimes steep) and start our walk back to the cars.
