You have to climb steep stairs to reach there. Difficult for elder people. Even the stones are slippery and you need to be cautious. But what you find there is not worth the trek. Not well maintained...just a boundary wall and a few ruins. Yes...More

The view from the top was amazing. The place is built from rock mountain. Of course you have to climb the stairs to climb it. But it's not really hard. We went with 2 children and we're fine. In fact I was wearing a flip...More

yes you can easily cover it in 3 hrs. As you will reach there by 3pm also give consideration to light as once dark it will be difficult to trek the slippery rocks.
