Here we will give you all the equipment you need. Then we take the transport for 40 minutes to reach the base of the volcano (at 1200 masl). 7.30am: We start walking for about 6 to 7 hours to reach the summit (2847 masl). *** During YELLOW ALERT, we will climb until 2300masl, the climb lasts around 4h. 2pm: Maximum time to reach the summit.
