“You've got to do it!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 July 2014

Take your time and enjoy the views. Be prepared with the right clothing, footwear, food, water and keep to the track and you'll be fine. We made it up in just over 3 hours and down in 2.5 hours. Lots of celebrations at the top and bottom!!!

“Just amazing!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 14 July 2014

I am not easily impressed by natural things being more of a 'townie' but I would have to say I can only describe it as stunning.
One of the best sights I have ever seen, needs to be seen to be believed

Impressive and imposing mountain. Did take seven and a half hours to get up and down, but well worth it.

“Brilliant”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 July 2014

But not for the faint hearted,very tough physically if you go all the way to the top, but views are spectacular even half way up. Not for anyone with walking difficulties.
