Take the challenge of hiking Baru Volcano, Panama’s highest peak! (3,475 meters/11,400 feet)! In about 4-7 hours, depending on one’s physical condition, you’ll make your way to the summit of the dormant volcano at 3475 meters high, as you traverse through rolling green hills, lush jungle and finally to rocky cliffs. From Baru Volcano’s summit, you will get a stunning panorama of both of Panama’s coastlines, the Pacific and the Carribean – fingers crossed that the weather is great!
If you choose to hike the volcano during the dry season starting at about midnight, you will reach the summit in time for the amazing pink sunrise breaking through the clouds. During the rainy season, starting at about 06:00 am, you should reach the summit between 10:00 am and 12:00 pm, with time to enjoy the expansive view of mountains, jungles and oceans.
Duration: 8-14 hours
Start/End location: Boquete, Panama
Miscellaneous: Participants should be in good physical condition. Although you can take your time hiking Baru Volcano’s trail, certain sections of the trail are quite strenuous and the hike spans anywhere from 8 to 14 hours, depending on physical condition.
