Steep walk but beautiful lookout of the glacier, river and lots of nice waterfalls.

Really steep during the first two hours, good physical condition needed. Check the weather before going, we did not see anything at the top because of the cloud but should be so NICE! Can be done in five hours or less, not eight hours as they say!

Don't do this after rain! Too muddy. Very difficult walk anyway due to long climbs and very steep ascent. Very rewarding views if weather is good.
