Magnificent views are waiting on top of the volcano! And the gas and smoke emission is stunning. Better go early in the morning or before sunset to avoid crowds.

I think the walk up is more than 800 metres but who cares when the views are spectacular and seeing the smoke from the fissures is awesome. Great sense of achievement.

The walk is not really difficult, and VERY rewarding. Amazing sight!!!! Sulfur everywhere, and black volcano ashes to walk on. But beautiful.

It's not the most difficult of the volcanos on the islands and can easily be walked without a guide. Talk plenty of water!
