The hike was challenging.it was quite high as well the steps helps u easy down the hike a little bit. there were a lot of beggars a long the hike,just prepare small change.the are shop at the peak,bit u need to come down a little bit and squeeze into a very small cave to arrive at the place where jibrail taught Rasulullah s.a.w iqra.
However,it was very sad that the hill was dirty along the hike,u could see plastic bottle is almost everywhere.it felt like the hill is a dumping side.i hope the local authorities will do something to preserve the quality and attraction.
I suggest to climb the hill during nite time.it colder and windier.
If you are going on ur own,from masjidil haram it would cost u,25-30 riyal per person.
