The views were amazing but be prepared for a very rocky climb. About 90 mins up 70mins down. You need good walking shoes and water, none is available onsite. Very rewarding for sure!

The climb itself is the real adventure here. It starts with a path that slowly turns into rocky formations that you will have to find your own way on. It's not extremely difficult or an experienced hiker but if you have fear of heights or...More

I walked to the top with my boyfriend at 02.06.18, we started from the small church Aiga Marina at 09.15 and walked for 1h20min to the top. We should have started at 7 or 8, because the heat was a bit annoying after a while....More
