Nice place to enjoy a day with easy trekking and climbing. Pack yourself with some food and drink and spend the day till sunset if you can to best enjoy the changes in colors on the rocks.

To answer my own question now that I went there - you can arrive any time. The road to the accommodation is always open and you can drive through without a ticket to get in. Then just buy your ticket in the morning.
