      The negative side was...
      Karine_G, Nov 2023
      The negative side was very uncomfortable minibus we had to spend many hours in. I would strongly recommend the organisers to charge more money for the tour but get a comfortable bus. Otherwise, well organised and great experience.
      Hard but amazing
      Veronica_M, Aug 2023
      This trip was hard but amazing the views from the mountain top with the sun rise a wow experience I'd say you have to be fairly fit to walk it or you can get a camel ride up 90% of the Way the monastery beautiful to see the church the burning Bush mosses well just wonderful but bring warm clothes for the mountain top its very cold at night and wear proper walking shoes
      Amazing sunrise

      Eine unfassbar schöne Aussicht

      Die hilfsbereiten Beduinen, aufstieg ist anstrengend aber wird durch ein traumhaftes panorama entschädigt
      Subida difícil, mas a vista é incrível!
      Ionara_V, Sep 2023
      Tem que ter muito preparo físico. Subida de mais de 3 hs com mais de 700 degraus com pedras da montanha já Chegando no pico. Mesmo se noite está quente, quando chega ao topo faz muito frio. Mas a vista é maravilhosa! No trecho é possível comprar água e tem banheiros muito rústicos, precisa pagar para usar. No topo também alguém alugam cobertores caso você sinta frio.

      Guide bravissime ci hanno accompagnato sempre in qualsiasi momento anche la guida Mamood. Sembrava il paesaggio dei presepi in notturna
