Thanks to Jonathan Boarini for adding this peak.
Ipala is an excelent day hike, and very rewarding. Ascent of the small cone takes just one hour, to arrive at the crater, which is half a kilometer in diameter and is filled with water, making it a very interesting volcano. The top part is still covered in lush vegetation. Deforestation is very threatening to the voclano, and there have been initiatives to make it a pretected reserve. Email me for more info.
