We walked to the entrance to the cable car on a beautiful day (the ground station is a little of a hike to get to but if you are driving, there appears to be plenty of parking on site). We only found out once there...More

Hi Ciaran yes, its only allowed between 9am and 5pm weekdays. Any wanking outside this period is frowned upon by the locals. Hope that helps and enjoy Wank Mountain !!
