I seemed to have followed other mountain bikers when i came across this stopping point on the main road. Parking the bike and paying a small fee I went for the walk up the steps, armed with my water bottle. It was a hot day and I had decided to wear my jeans as I got mossy bitten the first day of my arrival here. Big mistake !!

It was humid and hot (top 20's) and the walk was a long trawl up though the vegetation as numerous travellers climbed the innumerous steps to the top. Most small groups of walkers were accompanied by friendly local ladies who would make small chat and hope that someone would buy some mango or pumpkin juice (i think) as they own water supplies ran out. these women must walk up these steps several times a day and must eitehr be exhausted at the end of the day or just incredibly fit.

At the top the view was hazy but still worth the climb.
