Had sunrise hike early in the morning with amazing views from the summit, geyser sound like the airplane before take off. the old lava can be seen at the crater. We were lucky with the good weather but not with our lazy guide.

Nice volcano with a fantastic view on the area around it. If you are lucky you can see monkeys on your way up.
