We love the structures, we like bathing the buddha's in the wash area wishing for the best years that are coming. Going uphill is very good, overlooking the city is a nice feeling.

A lot. Good hike. Can be very hot and very crowded. Plan accordingly. We climbed in the morning to avoid crowds and heat...but missed sunset views. 😄
