The Concepción Volcano is 1610 meters high, the second highest in Nicaragua. It is located in the north-western part of Ometepe, and it has a perfect cone-shape that becomes a beautiful picture from practically any part of the island. The Concepción was dormant for several hundreds of years until it erupted again in 1880. Since then, there were 8 eruptions, including the last in March 2010, when it spit out a huge ash cloud. The trail to the summit is steep and difficult: after some 4 hours of trekking you will be rewared with a spectacular view or (if it is cloudy) with a sense of accomplishment and fulfillment!
