Pico Cao Grande, Sao Tome

4.6
#2 of 6 in Nature in Sao Tome and Principe
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.

  • On the way to the south our bus chauffeur had stopped so that we could take some photos. This "PICO" is really very impressive. 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
