Doucki is hard to find. But it is worth it.
It is a really idylic village. You could became jealous.
Hassan is an experienced guide. He shows us his village. The area. The plants. The Grand Canyon of Guinea. he teaches us to say „hello“ in Pular – the language of the Foulas. His wife cooks for us. It is delicious.
On the following day we hike. We choose the Extended Indiana Jones Trail. Almost 5 hours. Through canyons and lianas. Streams. Natural jacuzzis. Bizar rock formations. Waterfalls. Incredible beuaty is hidden in these canyons.
Thank you, Hassan!
At the N5 there is an old sign. No given distance.
We take a turn and ask. And ask again and again.1.5 hours and 30 onroad-offroad kilometers later we finally found it.
Now it is dark.
Plannig your trip in Guinea is quite difficult. Planning your time is maculation. Always. We stay overnight at the camp run by locals. Next day we hike to the water falls. With a guide. It would not be necessary but you just do it that way here. And it is good the way it is. A local initiative that brings money to the village. We support that.
It is cleaning. It is refreshing. It is wild. It is uncomfortable.
You feel like a model. At a photoshoot.
