  • But figuratively as well. The Mount Scenery is of course one of the reason to go to Saba. If you are and you are fit enough for a climbing then you may not skip these anyway. If you are on your convenience goes up then you are between 1 and 1.5 hours to reach the top. Meanwhile, enough time to enjoy and to very nice pictures. The climb is varied, but is for the most part from odd stone steps. These are also pretty high. A cane or walking stick is recommended to so to have extra support. Especially if it is damp. When I went up it fell along with the mud and humidity, despite the top in the fog. Wet with sweat is your sure, so bring plenty of water with you. A dry t-shirt is also not a luxury. The palm topper, that were damaged by the storms, were also pretty aan't grow in November. You could definitely see damage yet, but the Green is growing again soon. Though I have little wildlife seen. I also don't know if they live there at all. The entrance to go upstairs is within walking distance from the village of Windwardside. The Sandy trail is less heavy and is also very beautiful. This runs on the north side to the mountain. If you are not sure whether you have the Mount Scenery red in terms of fitness you would first be able to do this. Also on that hike are some climbing spots, but not nearly as far and high.

  • ... But the way to the second panorama was not very well maintained. Attention markets are slippery on the last third of ascension. Otherwise, no major difficulties.
