The photos and views should speak for them selves. This was the 3rd or 4th time visiting this site, but for sure not the last time. Spectacular views over this beautiful and impressive mountain chain.

It is not the most convenient way to travel by public transport as it will and can take you long - easiest is to drive up and then the walk to to top takes about 30 minutes - not at all steep.
