Great hike. Strenuous and relentless uphill grind but worth the spectacular views if you are lucky to have a clear day. Although I went up in rainy season (June-Oct), we lucked out with sunshine up and down, albeit a haze across the eastern half of the lake. .
Had a knowledgeable guide, Ronny Ventura, with 3 years of almost daily trips under his belt. Guide is more for safety, than trail finding.
