  • Getting to the top to admire the view is an arduous trek, should have a warning sign. The altitude and the journey is a challenge. Get there as early as possible. If the insta models get there before....  more »

  • 'Go EARLY!! Wear proper hiking shoes, apply a lot of sunblock and bring water.' Mixed feelings about the whole experience. Would have rated the hike as 5+ as it was challenging enough and fun enough. The path was shaded with the trees that saved us a lot from the heat as we didn't hike early in the morning. Closer to the top the views were amazing. Two of my companions wore sandals (I know perfect for hiking) but they still managed to reach the top. On the other hand, on the top the experience was underwhelming: we had to queue for an hour and a half as the time was approaching noon and it was Sunday. People on the rock took their sweet time which made the wating crowd more and more furious. With the time and crowd pressing on us the photos my companions took were so bad that almost made me cry. Although there's a professional photographer offering his services on site.
  • Worth the trip and the hike. Great place to take pics even on the other side of the mountain.
