From the entrance of the park (100Q/pers) we are told that a guide will accompany us to the last watchtower, half of the volcano because after there is a risk of aggression. We don't want a guide but they insist and advise us to leave our valuables at the bottom. Why pay for an entrance to an ecological park if it is not to be able to go upstairs? Weird. At the end of the second watchtower our guide announces that he is coming down. We continue alone at a good pace. 500m from the summit we come across a couple who run down and explains that they were assaulted by 4 men armed with machetes and who took everything from them... It cools us down and we decide to go down to the race pace. We explain the situation on our return to the entrance desk, no one seems surprised and the guides are no longer surprised there ... In short the atmosphere set very strange! It's a shame because the view is great but better to leave with an agency!

If you go to the top you will get robbed. Just take a Guide to the second stage with the swing and leave all important stuff in the hotel. Two guys infront of us got robbed and were running down because they got assaulted by 6 guys with long machets even though they had a guide with a Pitbull (useless).
Worth the hike. Magnificent views.
