Beautiful images captured from my adventure in the Blue Mountains.
Where is it?
Remotely in the Blue Mountains, not too far away from the capital of Jamaica, Kingston
What to expect?
This unique place is well hidden, no travel guide will inform you about this little place on earth. It's hard to get there but when travelers arrive in the village, they are warmly welcomed by the community. You can stay overnight or just hang out for a few hours there, it is important to respect their religious rules regarding praying, church and gender roles while staying there.
How to get there?
Take the public transport to Papine Square. You can get there with a minibus or just by taking a cab. From there ask for the next minibus to Redlight. From this small village in the blue mountains, you can either walk or (better option) take a cab. You need to point out that you want to go to the Rastafarian mountain village and the driver will drive as close as possible to the village, you will still end up to walk the last 25- 45 minutes straight up the hill, but it will be definitely worth it.
When we arrived there, a traditional prayer service was just about to take place and we had the chance to experience this unique cultural event in person.
