After a short kayak ride upstream along the picturesque Moho River, you will reach the beginning of the trail for Kite’s Hill.
Mr Kite was a British man who arrived in Belize in the 1970’s to teach the British military jungle warfare and survival skills. You will pass the foundation of his house at the start of the hike. After Mr Kite passed away, and the house had turned to ruin, Cotton Tree Lodge found a safe box buried beneath the floor, though unfortunately the money stored within had rotted away!
The hike itself is relatively challenging, with some steep areas that require some stable footwork in order to ascend. Once at the top, you can see over the Maya mountains, along the Moho River, and across the 100 acres of Cotton Tree Lodge’s grounds.
If you wish to save your energy solely for the hike, the brief trip along the river can be taken by boat.
