  • Very nice site and my visit was a weekday and there were only a small handful of other visitors. Pretty much had the place to ourselves. The access provided is far more than expected. The only worker i saw was the nice man at the gate collecting the entrance fee. Take your time and watch your step as some areas are steep and many have loose footing.
