Mount Liamuiga – A TOURIST IN THE CARIBBEAN

Mount Liamuiga

Mount Liamuiga also known as Mt. Misery, is the highest volcanic peak on the island of St. Kitts, as well as one of the tallest peaks in the Eastern part of the Caribbean at (1.156m) or 3,792 feet. As you ascend the mountain it is covered with farmland and small villages up to 1500 feet, after which lush tropical rainforests drape the slopes until the cloud forests take over at 3000 feet. The climb is quite steep with slippery rocks and difficult terrain through the rainforests to the top of the volcano.  There are various species of plants and trees, including ficus, mango, orchids and ferns, and the presence of birds and monkeys, as you make your way up the volcano peak. At the top of the mountain, there are two viewing points from which to look into the crater. You can also climb down into the crater but be very careful as there is no telephone reception and may experience loose rocks. The tour takes about two hours each way and the roads are winding and hilly. If you like a challenge it is definitely worth considering. But ask yourself, how many places in the world could you climb a volcano in a cloud forest??
