We got there at 6am, to avoid the heat. Did the walk with a guide, which I can recommend. With just a normal condition it's not that hard. The walk and vulcano are both really beautiful and impressive.
We had a half day hike with Jotje to Lokon volcano. Jotje is very experienced, with track, landscape and also taking nice photos. He is able to communicate in fluent English. We felt safe and relaxed with him. The truck itself is a little challenging,...More

Amazing hike, well worth doing, here are a few tips about the hike WITHOUT a guide (definitely feasible).
Leave early (we started at 6.30), weather is better and not too hot yet. We walked from Mountain View Hostel, it took us just over an hour...More
We hiked up the volcano together with tour guide Jotje Lala, who was an excellent guide with lots of experience and cool stories (he's been up there a 1000 times, has seen it explode in real life). Jotje is fun and entertaining all the way...More
