Cerro Chirripo Hike

If you’re a climber, climbing this mountain is possible, but one must gain a permit from the National Park office. Near the base of this mountain can be extremely hot, but when you near the summit the temperatures start to drop. Once you’re at the peak, be sure to notice the sunrise, as your best chance at having clear weather at the summit is during the morning.
