Great hike up until final ridge, super-slippery mud dictated a retreat.
Hiked to the Catarata La Cangreja waterfall. Beautiful place.
The ranger did not allow climbing due to high winds, but I sneaked up and met four others on the mountain. The winds gusted to 90 km/hr, but died down around 11:00. The clouds also lifted, revealing the awesome light-blue acid lake deep in the crater. Near-vertical slopes prevent reaching the lake shore, but fumeroles and floating sulphur scum can be seen from above. A sign warns not to stay more than 15 minutes due to toxic volcanic gases.
Nice hiking trails, beautiful area !!
A beautiful trip up through the forest zones, howler and spider monkeys. The trip to the waterfall to swim is amazing. There is a hot spring in the waterfall plunge pool, unbelievable...
It was a great hike. Our son had alot of fun there.
Carried by my daddy along the route.
Interesting hiking area.
