Itinerary

- From our meeting point to the Bandama volcanoes area.
Here we will start enjoying some panoramic views while we make a little briefing of our trip.

To get there, we will walk about 1 hour and reach the bottom of the crater (if you have walking sticks they are helpful).
**VERY IMPORTANT: USE PROPER WALKING OR HIKING SHOES. NO FLIP FLOPS OR HIGH HEELS).

- Once we reach the lower crater, we will keep walking inside, in a circular path, before walking back to the start point in a moderate slope.
The way up is taking us another hour, but walking with no rush.
