Sunset Picture taken from Volcano El Hoyo overlooking Los Maribios Volcano Chain

Check out Volcano Boarding in Leon Nicaragua.

This photo was taken from Volcano El Hoyo looking out at Los Maribios volcano chain in Nicaragua during our 2-day trek booked out of León with Quetzaltrekkers.

As you head towards León it is impossible to miss the view of the perfectly shaped Volcán Momotombo. Rising 1297 meters high, Momotombo towers over Lago Xolotlan (Lago de Managua) and its little brother, the island volcano Momotombito. Momotombo began growing 4500 years ago and last erupted in 1905. Momotombo played an important role in history when, in 1625, it buried Nicaragua’s former capital, the old city of León, under layers of volcanic ash. – Quetzaltrekkers
