If you want a volcano experience, then this is an easy way up the mountain! But you should not stop where the cable car stops. Get yourself a pass up to the summit and do it! amazing view from the summit. There are also some...More

Be prepared for a long wait and then your loaded into a crowded carriage for a 6 minute journey and then you have to repeat the queuing again to get down. The view is ok but I don’t think it’s anything special. The National Park...More

First things first. It’s probably worth saying check your ticket. When you book the cable car online you book for a morning or afternoon slot, at this point however it is not especially clear that you are also assigned a specific time slot. Not a...More

You only need a permit to walk the last bit to the top . From the cable car you can walk so far up but then you will need the permit to walk the rest of the way .
