A great experience... As a beginner I thought it will be too difficult to reach the top but fortunately it was not that bad thanks to our great guide Lucas, there was a portion which we climbed using tools and ropes though you don't need that if you are experienced and the views from the top are spectacular.

The view atop this mountain was one of the most beautiful things I've ever seen in my life! Be aware however, that you will be doing some serious mountain climbing on this excursion and will get dirty. The climb takes around 8 hours up and down, so eat a good breakfast and you may want to bring snacks and of course water for along the way. No bathrooms along the way, so if you are shy about relieving yourself in the woods, this is something you should know. Our guide Didi was extremely trustworthy, patient and supportive, I would give him 5 stars!!
