Itinerary description

Beautiful walk up and around the crater. It goes up and down all the time; but is is never too steep. I am afraid of heights, but I found it very much doable. Most climbing is in between rocks and the vegetation makes it feel safe. Walk counter clockwise (turn right at the top). The first hill looks scary from afar, butt you actually walk behind the hill and do t scale it. If you have reached the top; after that everything gets much easier and the heights will be less of a problem. So just try to reach he top and from there it will be much easier.and loved the experience. It can get hot, so take enough water.
