Telica Volcano, Leon

4.7
#9 of 23 in Nature in Nicaragua
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 itinerary builder.

On the other hand, it's going down the headlamp. If you're in the area, go for it.
