Loved it. Took our 10month old and our 3year old the guide insisted that he carry our 3year old - he did an amazing job..! Bikes going up and down get a bit annoying, but it’s nice to know they are there.. they do kick up dust too! They did try watering the track down a bit but still quite dusty. We found the weather to be amazing.. it was 13° which is their average, we were told.. so we packed warm clothes for nothing

The hike in itself was beautiful and we had only a slightly obscured sunrise but it was beautiful. The hike is a class 1 fairly wide path, the challenge is the amount of people going up at the same time. We did a guide as I’m sure 99% people do and it’s a two sided coin. On one you are supporting the local economy and we had a great guide who cared deeply about the mountain and community. On the other side it is a money driven activity for many and definitely some racketeering going on if you don’t play the game. A beautiful experience that can be remembered two ways. Hydrate

Worth the effort, and absolutely worth doing for sunrise by headlamp

Don’t mind my recording. Totally messed up and forgot to hit end when the guide got us back to the starting point. There was 8 adults and 1 child and we knocked it out in 3hrs 45mins. 2hrs 15min going up and 1hr 30min going down. This sunrise hike is remarkable. So peaceful and relaxing after a hard hike up. Take your time but plan according so that you don’t miss sunrise. Anticipate a very very busy trail. Hundreds of people hiking

Very good hike, woke up at 1:30 am and drove to the mountain the hike is quite steep but my wife and I consider ourselves to be decently in shape and so though hard was not the worst we have done, but if you are not in shape and not up to hike then this will prove to be extremely challenging and hard. But don’t let it discourage you. The sunrise is gorgeous and even if you have clouds, like us, this is well worth the effort. A definite highlight of the trip!

We did this hike in 2018 at 3am until 8 am approx stopping at the top for a while. The climb isn’t hard but takes some time (1 hour and a half to 2 hours) but the summit is incredible

Did this hike in June. Usually don’t hire a guide for hikes.. but for this one we chose to after reading some reviews. I’m glad we did as twice we would have been stopped by locals who I believe would not let us continue without a guide. I’m sure you we were persistent you could get by them eventually. The first part of the hike is very easy. You will hit a fork in the trail. Left is the easy route, and also the route where you can then hire a motorbike to take you up. Right is the difficult route that you can trek up. We chose to go right, but were surprised with how many people chose to hire a motorbike for the rest of the way. The hike was steep but didn’t take very long. Good shoes are a must as there seems to be loose gravel on the trail and it is very easy to slide. Once at the top though it is very cold. I would recommend bring and jacket and wearing pants.

It was amazing I did it with my sisters in november 2018. We started the trekking at 3am snd 5am we were on the summit enjoying the beautiful sunrise

Amazing view and there was even a pack of monkeys running around that made for awesome pics. I went without guide and it was fine. The trail is paved fire road for 4/5 of the way up and the becomes grade 2 single track for the last .5 miles. FYI, mountain mafia is real, though not as bad as expected. I was hiking from 2:30am so maybe there weren’t many there yet, but I only encountered them once near the beginning of the actual trail right after the first temple. They were aggressive and pushed me, but I just shoved my way forward and walked away while they screamed terrorist at me and I wished them a good night :) come well prepared as the only bathrooms on the trail are disgusting and all food and drink at the top is hiked up 5x regular market price. Does get chilly at the top, but if you walk towards the true summit, you may get some small gusts of steam to cool you down.

Amazing hike definitely need to be physically ready for the incline half way up!!! And at the top it might be cloudy or clear you can never be sure! Great hike was definitely a good experience if you love the outdoors and hiking

Crowded.

windy and a little but chilly at top. nice sunrise

Did the sunrise hike in February. It’s was a great experience that I’d recommend to many. It is a bit challenging on the ascent and there are a lot of people all trying to do it at the same time. Once at the top the view of the sun rising over the lake was great while eating breakfast. The descent is an eye opener when you realize all of the steep/beautiful terrain you past right by on the way up. Great photo opportunities in the way down. Monkeys were very potent at the top.

Difficult because of the guide who have to bring you faster as he can to take more people the same day. The last part in sand is hard but the sunrise and the view is so cool. Beautiful but guides are not good
