  • Amazing place. Climb to the top is easy compared to climbing down...very steep and stairs required full body climbing. Worth a visit for sure :)
  • A place full of energy. The whole structure is pretty impressive for the time it was built. You must go up on the pyramid and feel the energy of the earth there.. and of course a great view of the whole campus.
  • Great day trip after seeing pyramids stop as t local artist shop for some great stuff on plants.
  • Astounding to see in person. An absolute must visit if you're in the area. Bring water and wear good climbing shoes!
  • Only pyramid you can walk up to! Great view and awesome bike ride around it!
