vulcano telica

vulano san cristobal

The telica is about 3480 feet high and one of the most active volcanoes in nicaragua. Unfortunately, the driveway is very narrow and densely overgrown, no getting through for our truck.

The telica is only 10 miles away from the city of león and this vulcano is part of a whole chain of active volcanoes in nicaragua, and when climbing up to the crater you can see the other mountains smolder. The main crater of the telica has a diameter of 2300 feet and – when it´s getting dark and the view is clear – you can see lava at the bottom of the crater in about 400 feet below the rim. The glowing lava then iluminates the rising steam reddish. A “must see” on a tour through nicaragua.
