Keep an eye on the time to ensure that the return trip down the mountain is not in the dark. The road to the car park requires a high clearance vehicle – book with a tour group to be rest assured. Dress warmly as the temperature and wind may not be too friendly up there. Keep an eye on the weather during the hike, as it can change quickly. Be sure where you place your hand or where you anchor yourself – snakes and rock falls are real risks.
