You can reach this mountain by getting a taxi.
I climbed this mountain and I was alone.
It took from me 2 hours to reach the top of this mountain .
There number of stations in the way up , where you can have a rest and buy cold water .
You can clearly see the place where the prophet ( PBUH ) and his companion Abubaker are said to hide from those who were following them .

This is a mountain where the prophet used to go for sanctuary and prayer, and here is where the archangel Gabriel first contacted him and informwd him that he was choosen to be a prophet. The place is high and you have to walk more than 1000 bad made steps to reach up there. With no facilities around. And when you reach up it is a nice view, but the cave at which the prophet used to be is really crowded that you will not be able to get in making all your effort goes in vein. There are also many piggers. The place should be maintained better than that.

It is a very difficult climb, but its all worth it. Only the able bodied people can try and not the aged ones.

This mountain is the place where first Revelation took place hence called Jabal Al Noor (Light). After that the Islam started & spread all over the world.
Difficult to climb, hence went up to some height only.

One of the holy places for me as a Muslim. Difficult to climb but if you want you can do it slowly with patience.
