The whole trek is an amazing experience. We did it with our two kids and it's doable, although don't expect an easy ride. However, if you are used to trekking, it's nothing out of the ordinary. What you see on the top IS! The landscape is just out of this world, it really is, no matter how many volcanoes you've seen - it's breathtaking. The trip down to the crater proved a little bit too much for the kids, so we had to back out. Still worth the effort. The only downside for me were the porters who rather often were expecting money or some gifts or both. We had Ozie baseball caps for them and about 20 mouth covers anyway to hand out, so we were not that surprised, however it was a little off-putting for us. Take plenty of water and some food, as you are in it for quite a few hours depending on your speed and how much time you want to spend on top. The trek down into the crater is at least 45min as you have to give way to the porters so you are slowed down by that a lot. All in all - stunning.
