  • Unlike the other tracks there is a "sealed track" you enter soba and arrived. you will first need to access the plateau (via the Bishop's hat or trail of plato) to after accessing the sealed track, which was a half hour walk at least. starting sealed track, you still have 1 hour, 1 hour and a half on average walk to get there and more of this to come. so we're talking about a tour that takes at least 4 hours of walking. the trail itself has no major climbs, is a walk in the Woods closed, until the quiet compared to other but long. and when you get up there is a whirlwind, even on sunny days. care up there, eh a sloping stone with wind so caution in time to come. recommend taking snacks and water. and go early .... and most importantly: don't go with threat of rain because via a mud alone. ... Good walk!
