Nice view and worth it if you go for a.Cheap $10-15 usd tour. Not the most stunning place but roasting marshmallows over the heat was fun

Awesome trip! If we'd been in the states I'm pretty sure we'd have been 3 miles away looking from a viewpoint with binoculars (like volcanos national park in HI). The hike is tough, if you're not in pretty good shape not sure I'd even attempt...More
