What To Bring: At least 1L of water. Hiking boots or sneakers (the path is mellow without rocky passages, however there are very steep parts in the beginning that are dirt and quite slippery). Trekking poles optional. Sunscreen/Sunglasses. We will take a short break at the top, so feel free to bring along a snack, though this is not required.
