Unfortunately, my question was answered within the first two minutes of the trip – pretty bad.

The trip is basically right up a mountain with an elevation gain of 853 meters. The beautiful scenery along the way would have been nice if it were not for the fact that I was staring at the ground most of the hike focusing on breathing.

As soon as you reach the top and get the most beautiful view of the city I have seen so far, you know it was worth the climb.

Beginning

As we parked, I was filled with optimism, a water bottle in hand and friends by my side – who soon cursed my name to get them to join me.

When we first encountered this message, we knew we had a long way to go.

The first quarter of the hike is just as the warning warns – steep. There are stairs on stairs and one gets exhausted pretty quickly.

As soon as you feel that you have mastered it, you will be hit by this sign.

Half way through

At this point, there were collective sighs. When we did the hike on a Saturday, it was busy with fellow travelers and we were all bound through sweat and pain.

For every water break, I could hear people cursing during breathing as they passed me. There was even a little girl who was there shouting “Sweet Jesus!” as she entered another staircase.

The markers along the way keep you somewhat motivated, and if you look down at the incredibly steep mountain, you get a superhero strong.

However, beware of the steepness. A little over halfway I tragically dropped my water bottle, helplessly having to watch it tumble down the slope.

Needless to say, I was not able to go back to find it.

The end

In what feels like years later, you reach the top with sore legs and dripping with sweat.

To congratulate you, they have a shirt attached to a tree with the perfect wording that reflects how you feel.

Once you have rounded the corner and seen the epic views of the ocean, mountains and city, it’s all worth it.

You can also have a bite to eat in the restaurant and explore some of the activities. They have lots of tourist attractions which were fun to see while we were chilling down.

While we enjoyed our well-deserved meals on the outdoor patio, people literally flew past us. It made the view even better.

Luckily, you have to take the gondola down the mountain. It’s great to ride down and look out the window to see how far you climbed.

Be sure to bring cash with you, to go down will cost you $ 20!
