The climb is not for the faint-hearted, but you will find refreshments and medical help on the way up. You can stay in the temple complex, since they offer simple rooms, just make sure to book in advance and learn when the temple is open for worship. Ladies from the age of 10 to 50 cannot enter the temple.
