The volcano fairly recently erupted so don't expect to see glowing red lava despite what pamphlets lead you to believe.
Not a very easy hike up due to the loose terrain but you can hire sticks for about $1 to help get you up or you can go on a horse taxi. Lovely views at the top.
Take snacks and water.
