The feature is so well publicised you look forward to being there. However the hillwalk to get to the Rock is a fine route in itself. Steep, rocky sections are overcome by stone staircases being built into the path. Boggy areas ate crossed by wooden...More

Great view, moderately stressful hike, many many people, a lot of waiting on the trail, start early for fewer tourists, limited bathroom facilities.

I can confirm camping grounds within 1- 2 klm's of the path start. I can also advise that there appears to be a lot of people camp wherever they stop. Can't advise on eating facilities. I was there this week, it was an... More
