Pico Cao Grande is a breath-taking needle-shaped peak in the Southern part of the island of Sao Tome, right next to the coast of Africa near the Equator. The peak is a volcanic plug, 663m (2,175 ft) high, considerably higher than the surrounding jungle. The name literally means :"Big Dog peak" and the slightly lower Little Dog Peak is situated nearby. Climbing of both is extremely difficult and is done only with suitable rock-climbing equipment; however the view from the top is magnificent. It is one of the main places of interest in the small nation of Sao Tome and Principe.
