Create an itinerary including Volcan Concepcion
Attempt to scale the majestic heights of Volcan Concepcion, a powerful presence on the Nicaraguan skyline with an elevation of 1610 m (5282 ft). Set off on the gruelling trail through a biodiverse environment, starting in deep jungle and muddy farmland before climbing toward a steep, sparse landscape with rocks and debris becoming more frequent as you get closer to the volcano's rim. Toward the summit, you will encounter strong, cold winds, and if you’re lucky, glimpse panoramic views stretching from the Pacific coast of Nicaragua to the Caribbean Sea. More often than not, thick cloud conceals this view. However, the sight of the volcano’s vast mouth and its almighty power makes the hike worthwhile, no matter the weather. Be prepared for an extremely difficult climb, bring water and appropriate footwear, and consider hiring a guide to help you.
