Nevis Peak is the highest point on the island of Nevis. It is a volcano, and there are activities in the form of fumaroles and hot springs. The eruption, however, has not occurred since prehistoric times. Although its height is lower (985 meters above sea level) than Mount Liamuig, the trails leading to the top are many times more challenging. Climbers who have visited Nevis Peak report steep and slippery trails, especially in the belt where clouds hover over the summit and ropes have been set up in many places to help with the climb. Professional guides are recommended, but also a high level of physical fitness, as well as serious footwear for such conditions, and good gloves.
