There are stairs down to the lower viewing platforms, so it's not 100% accessible. But you won't be missing out by not going to these. As the others said, take very warm clothes.

Easiest way is to book a tour with gray line tours. Hire a car 🚗 if you wish to see the sunrise or drive up there yourself
