We took the cable car up which was very good but then made the mistake of having lunch at the top. The food was pretty poor, and the service shocking. The waitress was one of the rudest I have ever encountered. Make the trip up...More

We took the cable car up, had lunch at the restaurant and walked back down through beautiful flower meadows. It was easy to follow the path; it took about two hours to get back.

We took the cable car up and unfortunately, we reached there about an hour before it closed, so we didn't have time to enjoy drinks at the café or do any climb. But the view was awesome and the ride was interesting and the view...More
