  • Good luck trying to get a good view. Mountain is surrounded by clouds most of the time, but once you do, its very rewarding
  • There's a reason it's famous. Easy 5 stars, enjoy! :P
  • Beast place, highly recommend this if you are in good shape, impressive views. Make sure the day is not foggy nor cloudy otherwise you won't see much despite the effort of the trekking.
  • Extremely nice mountain
  • Out of this world. Be sure to check out Glacier Piedras Blancas on the way down. It’s only half an hour walk. One hour round trip.
