Very hard place to visit which will stay with you, possibly for ever

A challenging hike with lots of mozzies

Started the walk almost noon. Heat was sweltering, 600ml of water was almost not enough if not for stopping by Bearlin Bungalow for a beer stop on the way back to town. Steps are pretty steep and takes about 1h10min to reach the peak with a couple of rest
