Telica Volcano, Leon

4.7
#3 of 7 in Parks in Leon Department
Volcano · Nature / Park
Hike to the top of the active Telica Volcano, and marvel at bubbling magma within its huge crater. The relatively strenuous route to the top leads to rewarding panoramic views of the surrounding countryside and other nearby volcanoes. Peer into the giant crater to see the red-hot magma deep below. Head up just before sunset, sit and watch the sun go down, and enjoy the glowing magma that becomes even more impressive after dark. Pack a flashlight for your journey back down, or make sure your guide can provide one. Plan to visit Telica Volcano during your Leon vacation using our convenient Leon trip site.

  • Well this place is very much awesome than I thought it to be.....Preferred by me...
  • It really was a wonderful experience, I will certainly do it again, an active volcano of 1061 meters of height more or less, not so easy but accessible, of course a guide is necessary. From the volcano you will see wonderful and incredible views of Leon and the rest of the mountain range "Los Maribios", the sunset and the sunrise are necessary to appreciate them from there, it is a minimum requirement to enjoy the experience.
