Maderas from Hacienda Merida
4,0 av 5 boblerfeb. 2014
Vi haiket Maderas fra sør trailhead på Hacienda Merida etter å ordne med guide kvelden før. For informasjon, turen er ca 7,5 km tur-retur med en total høydestigning på ca. 4250m Guiden ønsket å starte kl. 7 under forutsetning av at turen tar ca. 8 timer. Min venn og jeg er erfarne Colorado turgåere og vår guide, Simeon var ikke redd for å la oss holde tempoet oppe. Turen starter forholdsvis flatt og jevnt blir brattere hele veien til toppen. I tillegg, jo høyere opp du drar, jo våtere og mer tett terreng blir (se bildet) satser på røtter, tau, og logger for å klatre opp veien opp. Også med høyde kommer skyene rundt toppmøtet, som dessverre kom inn i bildet for dagen vår. Vi gjorde toppmøtet i ca 3 timer (10am), men skyene ikke hadde brent av og vi kunne ikke se noe, selv i krateret lake. Med vår hastighet, Simeon ga oss muligheten til å ta turen ned til sjøen, noe de ikke har vanligvis, men vi valgte ut og dro ned igjen. Synkende viste seg å meg litt mer utfordrende i gjørme og vi begge falt mer enn én gang. Vi avsluttet turen i 5,5 timer, tilsynelatende én av de raskere turer Simeon hadde vært på. En annen gruppe samme dag tok nærmere den gjennomsnittlige 8. Den Totale Opplevelsen var fantastisk og vi ble ganske svimlende klatre- og oss gjennom terrenget vi er vant til. Jeg skulle ønske vi hadde lagt igjen senere på dagen slik at vi hadde en utsikt fra toppen, men. Jeg tror de fleste kan nyte denne fjellturen, også, så lenge du vet hva som venter. Vil du svetter mye og du får gjørmete, men vi hadde begge en minnerik opplevelse.

The hike is difficult. Period. Takes about 2 hours of all incline to get to the mirador. It’s hard but 100% doable even for the inexperienced so long as youre able to go your own pace. I loved the views along the way, youre IN the jungle. Bring a hiking pole and have a basic working knowledge of what incline hiking is like. It’s a lot of climbing the first half. The second half is why you need a guide. There’s not clear identifiable trails. Takes about another 3hrs and expect to get muddy. Just do research, know what you’re getting into and I would, without a doubt #1 recommendation, DO NOT go with a big group of varying capabilities. Going faster than you want or slower than you want can make things so much harder than they need to be. Everyone needs to go on their own pace and enjoy the ride. If you can’t do that, it’ll be awful.

Wir (ich mit meinen beiden Kindern 3+5) haben den inaktiven Vulkan Maderas Anfang Mai, also noch direkt vor der Regenzeit, bestiegen und sind bis zur Lagune hoch. Morgens um 6 ging es los. Der Anstieg war zuerst sehr flach mit Treppenstufen und wurde dann immer steiler, steiniger und schlammiger je höher wir kamen. Teilweise ging es quasi nur auf allen Vieren oder kletternd voran. Leiiiider leider leider hatten wir kein gutes Wetter und oben war es total bewölkt, somit hatten wir leider keine schöne Aussicht. Anders als ich dachte, kann man in der Lagune nicht baden, man sinkt nur immer tiefer in den Matsch ein, aber das mag nach der Regenzeit auch anders sein. Nach insgesamt 10 Stunden Wanderung waren wir wieder unten. Es hat sich auf jeden Fall gelohnt und war ein ganz ganz besonderes Erlebnis!! Mein fast 6 jähriges Kind ist fast den gesamten Weg alleine hoch, ein jüngstes hatte ich in der Trage auf dem Rücken. Ich bin zwar schlank und gesund, aber mache sonst keinen Sport und obwohl mir am nächsten Tag alles wehtat, habe auch ich es hoch geschafft (plus 13 kg auf dem Rücken) :)

Auf keinen Fall würde ich die Wanderung ohne Guide empfehlen! Es gibt keine Beschilderung und viele Möglichkeiten, sich zu verlaufen. Ich kann euch wärmstens den Guide Marvin empfehlen. Er hat jahrelange Erfahrung, ist super freundlich und hat sogar die Kraft gehabt, mein Kind den größten Teil des Weges runter zu tragen (ich glaube, er wollte rechtzeitig nach Hause und auf dem Rückweg waren Steine und Stöcker natürlich interessanter für die Kinder xD ) Ihr erreicht ihn unter +505 8406 0380 (er hat mir erlaubt, seine Nummer hier zu teilen)

Viel Spaß :)

We went on a hike to „El Mirador“ together with our guide José. It took us about an hour to reach the viewpoint. The hike was not too difficult and the view was definitely worth it.
We would definitely recommend José as your guide for a hike to El Mirador or also for a hike to the top of Volcano Conception/Maderas (José‘s phone number: +505 8857 4810). He was super friendly and gave us interesting informations about the island and the wildlife.

La montée du volcan restera un des meilleurs souvenirs de notre voyage, incroyable! Début à 6h30, retour à 12h30 (avec une bonne pause en haut). Les nuages entourant la rando n'ont rendu l'endroit que plus mystique! Virgilio, notre guide, était super , n'hésitez pas à le contacter -ou un autre guide- pour venir à bout du volcan !

Instead of hiking to the top of Maderas Volcano, I opted for “The Mirador.” It was a nice, fairly easy walk to this lovely viewpoint.

The trail took us through bean fields where campesinos were harvesting. The gradual incline becomes steeper and more slippery (ie mud on volcanic rock) during the final push to the mirador.

It took us more than an hour to reach the mirador. I was told that the top of Maderas is another three hours or more from here. The trail becomes much more muddy and steep and is completed most days in the clouds (ie zero views). Other TA reviews appear to confirm this information. Walking to the mirador on the other hand provides views below the clouds across the beautiful isthmus of Santa Cruz to Conception Volcano and the surrounding Cocibulca Lake.

To hike the trail requires payment of 50c at the registration desk of El Porvenir Albergue Ecológico. I hiked with with a friend and we paid $15 each to our guide (also required). El Porvenir has a number of preserved petroglyphs on display in its well-tended garden. It also provides simple lodging for $10/night. Call Jose at 88574810 if you want a friendly guide for this hike.

We attempted to complete the Volcan Maderas hike today (20/10/2022).

Logistically being based in Balgue it made more sense for us to do Maderas rather than Concepcion as we didn’t need to organise/pay for transport because we could do Maderas as a loop from our hotel. Cost wise we paid for a guide (30USD total for three people) + admission (3USD per person) so 39USD total for us three. Despite the apparent law that you must have a guide to climb one of the two volcanoes on Isla De Ometepe we did note a large group of people ascending the volcano without one. Therefore, I think perhaps this is a rule that isn’t being enforced in low season. We ascended using the Finca Magdalena trail. Note there are three different approaches that can be taken to get to the top of this.

The trail wasn’t too bad. Its clear some work had gone into it - there were timber sections and some ropes. It was a little wet but not too bad closer to the base. We ascended and after a little over two hours we reached a wonderful viewpoint approximately half way up. This provided views over Isla De Ometepe as well as Volcan Concepcion. Following this we attempted to push onto the summit. From the viewpoint I would describe the hike as becoming exponentially steeper and more muddy. After about half an hour we called it, turned around and walked back. Paradoxically we found descending was actually worse than ascending as the rocks all seemed to have a thin layer of moss and were quite slippery. I lost my footing a few times. Luckily there were no tumbles.

I think our experience is fairly typical of Maderas. The cloud forest at the top means the rocks are very moist and slippery with a layer of moss. Speaking to our guide he suggested that Concepcion is actually better to climb, despite being longer as it can at least dry during short periods of sun in the wet season because it isn’t covered in vegetation.

Overall I would only suggest completing this hike to the mirador. Even going that far took us 5 hours return.

This is a really tough hike, and we have done a lot of hiking. It's very rough, steep and rocky underfoot. It's very muddy and slippery particularly coming down and we were slipping and falling for a good couple of hours or more (ascent time 3 5 hours, descent almost 4 hours). Being a cold forest, most or the time we were in cloud so there was no view at the top. We had some good views coming down and the forest was lovely. Not a hijw I would recommend unless you have good walking boots, a stick, good ankles, and want to burn a lot of calories or are determined to climb all the volcanoes of Nicaragua or some similar goal.

I love to hike and I'm up for a challenge. If you're looking for a good hiking experience, don't climb Maderas. The work:reward ratio is way off. If you have a more intangible goal - want to climb every volcano in Nicaragua, or you really crave the muscle burn and are willing to risk a twisted ankle to get it, fine, just go in with the right mindset.

First, I'll say that our guide, Arlen, was good. I thought he might have given too much information, stopping at points along the way to talk at length, then setting off at a super fast pace that half our group couldn't match (and we were healthy, fit, young people who weren't new to hikes up mountains). But when we ran into trouble on the way down, he was a steady, helpful presence and we were really glad he was there, and it's those kind of situations in which you're really happy to have an experienced guide with you.

First, this hike is pretty darn hard. It's a steep incline, it's long, it's humid. The shade is nice and it does get a bit cooler at higher altitudes, but the trail after the first lookout gets rough - you're basically climbing up a narrow river bed. I'm okay with a steep climb, but the compounding effect of having to carefully place every step as you climb across big, muddy, slick rocks really adds to the fatigue quickly. I've done harder trails, but usually there's a payoff - views along the way, a unique destination at the end, something. At Maderas, the forest is cool but there are other ways to see cloud forests (I will say that I've lived in central america for a while. So I'm probably less impressed with the biodiversity than some because it's familiar, but I also know that there are many, many better hikes up volcanoes and through forests in the region). There are a few viewpoints along the way but they get less frequent the higher/rougher it gets, and at the end the laguna (which was way too shallow and muddy to swim in enjoyably) was underwhelming. Even the lookout point over the laguna, where we ate lunch, was uncomfortable.

Worst was the trip down. I will say - a couple of people in our group who were sure on their feet were able to sort of skip down, mitigating the treacherousness of the terrain by never keeping their feet in a spot long enough for the rock to shift or the shoe to slide. For the rest of us, it was a long, dangerous slog. We tried to place our steps carefully but there were still multiple falls, made more common by tired and unsteady legs. This is where the guide really became key - one of my companions fell hard a couple times and twisted a knee that was already a bit sensitive from previous injuries. It got pretty hard for him to continue, and the guide really helped him stay steady on some stretches. That said - he didn't have a choice but to come down himself. Apparently they have tried to carry disabled climbers down on pallets before, but the path is so rough that even experienced guides have a hard time when they can't see the ground because they're carrying a stretcher. All the rescue operations (according to what we were told, and it seems right) resulted in multiple falls and dropped patients, pain, and general danger. Moral of the story: you twist your ankle or sprain a knee or whatever, and you have to realize that you're basically on your own.
