  • Must say one of the prettiest and beautiful sight place. Climb to the top 6 miles and you won’t regret a second of your trail. Well marked and worth going in the morning when sun is not at its peak. Carry good jackets as it’s too windy at the top.
  • Challenging but rewarding hike. Basically uphill the entire way with narrow paths at times which require caution on the loose stone. Throw an extra layer in your backpack for the top even in the summer, it gets windy and cold.
