The track can seem boring as it's always the same scenery. Icy snow on the last km, but the view from the top is breathtaking, totally worths it! 5h return



Awesome view but pretty muddy and icy so the way was really slippery. Needed more or less 4.5h both ways.

We did it today. Started at 3.15 am to see the sunrise on the top. Took us almost 2 hours to the top (we're quite fit and during night is it much easier). It was breathtaking! One of the best views I've ever had! I can highlt recommend this track. It's amazing. The track is quite easy but it goes continously up. Take enough water and enjoy this beautiful view :)
