“Saw Pico perfectly from Bombain”
Reviewed November 25, 2012

I saw the Pico Sao Tome from Bombain Plantation.Quite a view as it is misty with clouds or a good rainbow after showers.I hear it's difficult getting to that part of Obo National Park.

“Really hard and dangerous! Must be in a good shape.”
Reviewed May 18, 2012

I've been there with my girlfriend and two guides and it was really difficult to reach the top. We did it in two days, there's no signs and even our guides lost. From the top you can see all the island and the view is beautiful but usually you can't see a thing because mostly there's fog and heavy clouds. The forest is amazing and jurassic. Take a good raincoat, good tracking shoes, the terrain is very muddy and slippery and the temperatures change from 28ºc wen you start to 13ºc on the top. Did it once and love it but don't know if I'll do it again.

“Pico Sao Tome”
Reviewed January 6, 2012

The mountain peak is very picturesque, but not as impressive as Pico Con Grande, the tubular tower.
