Very dusty area, and quiet stinky. It happened because many horses used there and they poop freely. But there are quiet good pura in there.

Taking a horse from the parking lot. Do negotiate. I paid 50,000 each way. The climb to the top requires good shoes. At the top of the crater, the ledge is narrow, so be careful! The views are spectacular!
