The view was spectacular and well worth the trip. We were there in December and it was very cold, so dress warmly. We plan on going back when it's warmer.

My husband and I aren’t great with heights, but it was worth going up on the gondola to experience the most amazing 360 degree views once you were at the top! It was the most breathtaking scenery everywhere you looked and so beautiful.
