Very nice view. Even on the Lookout (just 2h). But I would only recommend this hike if you have proper hiking shoes and you are physically fit. It's partial very steep and some climbing has to be done. It's very slippery when the ground is wet!

Wonderful! It's a little bit difficult to get there, because there are no normal walkways. It began to rain when we were at the top and the way was getting very slippery. On one point you have to climb at chains to go to the next level. Like a jump n run in real live :-) loved it! Take care. 3 hours one way.
