Part of a national park, Pico Cao Grande is a volcanic peak remarkably reminiscent of a needle. Due to its unusual shape and thick fog, the peak remains a challenging hiking opportunity suitable only for experienced climbers. In spite of the obvious risks, the volcano attracts many brave hikers intent on conquering the summit, 668 m (2,175 ft) above sea level. Pico Cao Grande is just one of the many highlights you can arrange to see using our international travel planner, Sao Tome Edition.

Unfortunately, one can only admire him at a great distance because there is no way to get to him. So we were told at least :-). Africa, you never know what's really true ;-).
Really exciting. You can see it on the way south. I recommend choosing a not too cloudy day otherwise you risk not seeing anything. There are several points on the street to stop, so walk down the street calmly.
Unobstructed and charming view. Worth the visit to the country, the peak is clearly visible on sunny days on the way south after St. John of the Angulars
