    Surely a beautiful ride but a disorganized Mountain House and a quota that does not work. Indeed we arrived at 6:00 in the morning and already a waiting for a 20 of people either 15-20 min to hear us say that he had to wait at least an hour that people go down, it puts us on queue with the number 12. We wait quietly and say we'll certainly go as planned to the Sunrise but not serious. 1 h the waitlist magnified considerably. 2 hours later we returned take information from a staff overwhelmed and nervous, answer they are unable to tell the waiting time for that, whether 100 hikers waiting downstairs and everyone is annoyed especially those of us arrived at 6 in the morning. It is proposed we see the film on the 'security' by saying nice we'll let us go then after the film nothing still waiting in a House on the mountain all crowded and people who get angry. In short we decided to leave and abandon. So if people responsible for organizing reading this thank you for putting in place a booking system the day before, avoid losing 3: 00 to get up at 4:30 for nothing

    Gorgeous but not for everyone and especially not for me! "it took us about eight hours more a closed once at the top, the hardest thing is the downhill where risk of slipping due to the terrain. We were not lucky because of the time, once you get a cloud prevented us from the view
