  • An excellent experience. A great getaway from urban life. Stunning views. You however require to be fit to climb all seven hills. You don't have to by the way and most people stop at the 2nd or third peaks which is manageable. For best experience, drive past the gate all the way to where the wind turbines end. Park as high up as possible. Just a tip 😉
  • the place is so fantastic.There is cool climate, and free circulation of atmospheric air. Actually is agood place to go for hike with your friends
