December may be cold, but it meant that there were no crowds. This place can be overwhelmed by the crowds in the peak seasons. Awesome experience, even people afraid of heights were on the planks. Exhilarating, you won't regret doing this walk.

The trek was average although the charges to get there was exorbitant. Not really fantastic but simply one check in my bucket list. Sadly nothing spectacular though.

Being comfortable on ropes and in climbing harnesses took the fear factor out of the plank walk. What we really enjoyed was the view, and the view of folks successfully overcoming their personal challenge. We waited about 45-60 minutes in line on a low-season day...More
