  • Beautiful and spectacular. Physically very challenging, so do not attempt if you are not fit, not prepared to climb. The higher you go, the more surprises you will get. Bring along plenty of water...

  • This place surprised me so much. It's a wonderful walk though gorgeous nature with caves and lots of temples. There is this exciting tiny passage though a cave that leads all the way up to the mountain. If you like adventure make sure you do this. It's called stairway to heaven. There are a lot of steps though! Reconsider going if you're not very fit, elderly or pregnant.
  • It's quite nice. Definitely go early morning as it gets hot and humid after 10am. Note that the 'entrance' is the actual lift 15k. The other 40k is some guide booklet with postcards, which you don't actually need since there are plenty of signs and maps boards once you get up. So unless you want the postcards, just ask for the lift ticket. The temples and caves are nice and overall it's a nice hike. Look out for local stores who will offer to park your bike for 'free' in exchange for buying something small. Only that they don't have anything 'small' you'll be looking to spend from 150k and up. Thus you have 2 options: a) accept the parking and see it as a way to support the local economy which has been hardly hit during the pandemic, or b) keep driving until you reach the designated visitors parking.
