Took around an hour to reach the Louvain, you need 4X4 preparations, easy to moderate difficult of driving, once you reach your going to enjoy it so much, the scenery is breath taking. Close to it there is also a real BAT cave

Hi. Yes indeed you can drive to the top if you are driving 4X4. It takes exactly one hour from the time you get off road.
