Part of a national park, Pico Cao Grande is a volcanic peak remarkably reminiscent of a needle. Due to its unusual shape and thick fog, the peak remains a challenging hiking opportunity suitable only for experienced climbers. In spite of the obvious risks, the volcano attracts many brave hikers intent on conquering the summit, 668 m (2,175 ft) above sea level. Pico Cao Grande is just one of the many highlights you can arrange to see using our , international travel planner Edition.

I saw it as a picture. Landscape from Jurrassic park. Wonderful
Really exciting. You can see it on the way south. I recommend choosing a not too cloudy day otherwise you risk not seeing anything. There are several points on the street to stop, so walk down the street calmly.
