This is a fairly short hike. Not too difficult, however you do have to climb over several large boulders, so you should be in decent shape. The views are amazing from the top. Be cautious of the wind when near the edges!

Nice hike with beautiful views from the top. Take a taxi to its bottom to avoid useless walk and then climb the stairs. It takes about 1-2 hours roundtrip.
