Sadly could not complete this trail as it was unbelievably windy and turned back, but stunning scenery and Lake, will be back, be prepared for wind chill factor of note.

Loved it. Incredible view from the top as well as from the bottom of the mountain . We left early in the am ( 6:45am) and reach the bottom in 45 min. Climbing up took us 1:45 min .

Very beautiful. It often rains in the mid-afternoon during rainy-season, so try to plan starting your hike in the morning. Locals say hike takes 4-5hrs.

Excellent trail with some steep slopes.

ModerAte to hard. It gets to 3900 meters high about 12700. Steep ups and difficult ascents but doable. Beautiful views of the crater. It’s hard to believe but they are farming to this altitude.
