  • We were looking at doing this as preparation for another volcano hike but we will take a pass. Unfortunate for the bandit situation. Thanks everyone for their input.  more »
  • Excellent hike, 3 hours of fairly intensive climbing and unfortunately the views at the top were obscured by a cloud, but won’t hold it against them
  • Hike done on 01/02/2020. Started at 5AM, we spoke with a local guide who was waiting for the sunrise at half of the ascent (at the columpio) who told us that 10 tourists were robbed on 12/30/2019 at the summit. Nothing happened to us (at 7AM at the top with a good pace) but the story has been confirmed later and it is still considered dangerous to climb solo or even with guide. The view is good from the swing (1H+ hikking) but better at the top. Hopefully it will be safer soon to enjoy this amazing point of view.
