Dominating the skyline of the city of Cartago, southwest of San José, is located at 11259.84 ft of altitude (3.432m); the route to the Irazú cross fertile agricultural areas of Costa Rica, where soils have been enriched by volcanic ash. The paved road ends a few hundred meters before the summit, there are trails that lead up to the crater. Because of its altitude, the summit of Irazú is often overlooked, towering above the clouds.
