Mount Liamuiga, St. Kitts

#2 of 12 in Nature in St. Kitts and Nevis
Challenging hikes with unparalleled scenic beauty, Mount Liamuiga is not for the faint hearted. A stratovolcano with an elevation of 1,156 m (3,792 ft), the highest point in St Kitts, it was formally named "Mount Misery", an indication of the hiking difficulty levels here. A diverse landscape, many trails begin at the old mango forest woodlands, then on into buzzing dense rainforests. If you make it to the top, you'll experience a mesmerising trail through Cloud Forest, then a walk to the edge of a 1 km wide (0.6 mi) volcano crater, a breath-taking chasm with spectacular views. Numerous tour guides operate here. Be sure to wear proper hiking footwear, and if possible, hiking poles. As with all strenuous hikes, bring plenty of water.

  • A friend and I hiked this and it was so cool! It got hot, cold, rained, super sunny and super cloudy all through the hike. We didn't go into the crater because it wasn't safe that time of year but she...  more »
  • My wife and I chose to do this hike without a tour guide and we didn't have any regrets. The trail was well marked and hard to get lost or turned around. We saw several tourist on the trail with tour guides and for those who couldn't keep up were left behind. What to bring....1. Hiking shoes/boots (low or high) with good grip are a must. The trail is very muddy and it's easy to slip without the proper shoes. 2. Long pants. Several people had mud and a few scrapes on their legs from slipping. 3. Hiking sticks were very useful on various parts of the trail to keep our balance and to navigate up and down. 4. Plenty of water and snacks. We brought 4 bottles of water for both of us and we only had a half a bottle for the hike down. For snacks for we brought some jerky, cliff and kind bars. If you're looking for a leisurely stroll through nature then this hike is not for you. The first 20-30 minutes was easy enough, but the rest of the way was straight up. I enjoyed this hike and would do it again. I hope this bit of information helps. Good Luck!!!!
  • I live in Vancouver Canada. I was born in St.Kitts returned after 47yrs in 2007. Even at that time I never heard of Mt.Liamuiga. it has been on my bucket list from 2017. However, in Oct 2018 I made it to the top of Mt.Liamuiga it was a phenomenal experience which took 2 hours. 🇰🇳😃👍🤸‍♂️🤸‍♂️ fortunately it was a dry sunny day. It's not a walk in the park. Totally exhilarating!
