  • Amazing walk. Around 2-3hr return. We toured with AAT Kings, we had an amazing experience, very knowledgeable and passionate guides. Great hospitality. Well worth and great rewarding view at the end.

It's a fairly difficult walk and very exposed in places; definitely one for the early morning during the hotter months.
