  • Definitely worth the visit! I would recommend going early in the morning so that you can avoid the huge crowds. I would also recommend going uphill first and then going downhill towards the lake after the hike, else you’ll be wet while hiking :). There were 2 lovely dogs accompanying us up the hill, which was nice! At the top there were some locals selling some food/drinks if I remember correctly. The hike isn’t so challenging and the route is quite clear. Bring some food and water and you’ll be fine. Oh and make sure to bring a mosquito spray, these are terrible here..
  • We have a wonderful day from 8 am to 8 pm with our guide. So much fun and amazing tour.
