Make the effort to get up before sunrise - the views are amazing whilst watching the sun break through. We spent 1hr up there walking around the perimeter of the volcano. Definitely wear trainers/walking shoes as some of the small loose rocks/stones can cause you...More

Yes noticed on our last visit Monuments have been desecrated, the summit stone remains & is well worth walking too.
