All the other reviews here are spot-on! It's quite a challenge, but not impossible. Here are some tips: - It's HIGHLY recommended you wear hiking shoes/boots. Some of the trails are pretty rugged, and regular running shoes don't provide much stability for this terrain. -...More

800 metres to the summit, 16.2 kms return and 7.5 hours to complete the circuit. We had a sunny day with bottom of the mountain temps in the high teens (Celsius). 4 km from the car park to the base, 3 hours to get to...More

When they tell you to bring at least 2 litres of water, do it. It was a hot day when we went. We took extra water and went through 7 1/2 litres between two of us. A couple of hikers had to be taken off...More

This is a hike you'll remember both for the accomplishment of doing it and the views it affords. Regardless of your fitness level, you'll want the recommended 6-8 hours simply to enjoy the experience. Footing is treacherous both up hill and down so you need...More

Where do I begin? This hike was amazing! In total, the hike took us around eight hours. This included lunch at the top and many photo ops. Make sure to go on a clear day, as the top of the mountain can be very foggy!...More
