You can do a 13km round trip around the mountain, taking in the summit and Kandel Rocks which is a great way to spend 4 hours. The first half is fairly steep, so be prepared to sweat (I was in a t-shirt with a temperature...More

We drove up to Kandel from St. Peter. Half the adventure was the drive! We didn't get to see any paragliders, but it is a base for them. The views from here were definitely worth the drive up. There are 360 degree views. There were...More
