The summit allows views of the volcano’s main crater, with views of the surrounding mountainous landscape. Visit the secondary crater, Diego de la Haya, to view its mineral-rich lake. The areas around the crater are barren, giving visitors the feeling of being in an alien landscape. With more than 2,023 hectares (5,000 acres) in the national park, it is home to montane forests and animal life including armadillos, owls, foxes, and a variety of birds.

  • It is a nice place to walk, see plants and animals very similar to the Andean Paramos. The weather is nice but could be a little chilly. You have to be lucky to see the lake , usually is cloudy...
