I got there 1h before sunrise. Parking lot was 95% full. I was really afraid that there is no space left at 5 fucking am on a huge parking lot! It was not crowded on the way up, because all people where already at the top, when I started. Track elevation: 1230m on 8km to the top (viewing point is maybe 300m below). Takes 2.5-3h to the top. Could see the people queuing for the picture from far away (at 6 am!). People coming down didn't look happy, they must have started between 3 and 4 am. What an invest!! I felt like my timing was in between: didn't have to queue for any foto (I think the peak is better) as the sunrise hikers where gone and the day hikers where still on their way. Do the hike early in the morning, day hikers were killed by the sun!



Would highly recommend doing this walk for sunrise, hard but very worth it and you miss most of the crowds. Steep walk, wear blister bandaids and stretch



The whole track took us 5,5 hours. It was really steep but definetly worth the views.
