  • It is a volcano in constant eruptive activity and its topography does not allow access and a quick exit. You can't camp nearby. It's dangerous.

  • We left early in the morning with our guide, hiking only by the light of the full moon. What a reward when we arrived at the destination, a look-out over what appeared to be a quiet (smoking) volcano....  more »

  • I hiked this overnight with a guide and three others in 2009. We camped on a high spot adjacent to the active peak. It was amazing watching and hearing the large ash eruptions and being close enough that ash is falling on you. At night and in the predawn, you could see large glowing orange rocks tumbling down the sides of the volcano. This was in February so everything was very very dry and enjoyable. Didn’t see any other people on the entire trip.
  • Getting away and in touch with nature. Awesome hike. It'd be better NOT to have to go through a literal dumpster to get here. More or some directions wouldn't hurt.
