    Know before you go

    • The climb, especially for those that are not used to walking in the mountains, is not short (5 hours)
    • There is a vertical drop of 400 meters, often with steep steps and sections covered with sand and volcanic ash, where it is quite hard to proceed
    • For some people, this hike is a considerable effort to deal with, even in the best physical condition and with suitable hiking equipment

    A short walk leads to to a viewing point where you can see regular eruptions of the vulcano at dawn or during early night. The landscape is very beautiful and if you are lucky you can combine a beautiful sunset with amazing vulcanic activity. Definitely worth the effort.

    Group was very large and bad arrangements about return. Tempo was initially also (too) high, so someone had to drop out. It is that you can not only go up, but otherwise the added value was limited.
