On doing my own research, we brought all the necessary stuffs for the trip including tracking sticks for my parents. But I was mislead into going up and down within 3 hours. Okay, 3 hours may be possible for me at a faster pace, but not with my parents.
In the end it took us 5 hours, 3 hours up and 2 hours down. Partly this was our first time ascending a mountain. If you do not want to end up spending 5 hours like us, you should time your walk and start off a little faster. This will help you to have more time up there for a rest and take some photos. This walk is not something like a nice stroke in the park and require certain amount of effort in climbing and watching out for slippy rocks. It was especially tough when we need to ascend through a pile of pebbles with water flowing over. We had to be really careful in every step we took. It would be nerve racking if any of my parent slipped and fell. Getting injured there was a bad idea as the place was so remote. We only met a couple on our way up and a guy on our way down throughout the 5 hours.
Once we reached around three quarter of the way up, the scenery there really made us felt all effort was well worth. Further up, wind became really strong and cold. Everywhere was wet and drizzling non-stop. Visibility drop to less than 50m. Totally another world from below. Overall, it was an adventurous and great experience for us. Just have to be mentally prepared for it before the trip and start climbing early.
