Exploring El Salvador #4

6개월 전

Introduction

My country is full of volcanoes. Based on Wikipedia, there are at least 22 volcanoes source
El Salvador has a total area of 21,041 km2 (8,124 sq mi). That said, Earthquakes are very often here :)

The photos you will see were taken in two different days. I really love visit this location!

Santa Ana Volcano (Ilamatepec or Lamatepec)

At 7,812 ft (2,381 mts) above sea level, it is the highest volcano in El Salvador and one of the most beautiful.

Visiting and hiking Santa Ana Volcano

At 1 hour 30 minutes from San Salvador, you can begin the hike from Casa Cristal Parque de Montaña

This a 2 hour hike (depending of your physical condition) that you will have to walk between trees and then rocks. The first half of the hike is full of vegetation and roads. Trees covers you from the sun.

Rocks began to appear after 1 hour of walk

Agave, this is the predominant vegetation in the volcano

The second part of the hike is harder because the sun hits you hard and rocks and stones begins to appear.
