Beautiful mountain with a million ways to get close. It seems the hiking trails begin in a few particular areas, and then, everyone seems to kind of meander along their own paths to get to where they’re going without any defining markings along the way....More

Bring water and food with you. The mountain is not so hard for climbing,possible to make it with kids. But better take guided tour if you coming without a car. The starting point is pretty hard to get by public transport.
