The Hell Valley separates the Somma mountain (the oldest vulcano) from the youngest volcano, Vesuvius, and is partly flooded by lava of the last eruption of 1944 colonized by lichen Stereocaulon vesuvianum. The visit to the Hell Valley is a fascinating walk to discover the western side of the Somma-Vesuvius because here you can appreciate the grandeur of the volcanoes.
After getting off the Valley , we'll reach a natural arch and then the so called"Cognoli of Levante" ; there we'll get to see the most beautiful formation of lava “string” of Vesuvius engraved by a deep fracture in which there are many species of fern and where we can enter as if we were in the bowels of the Earth!
The hike requires good physical condition and between 3-3.30 h walking.
During the hike we will have a nice break with a good Neapolitan coffee and some snacks.
