Went for the summit hike. Took me 6 1/2 hours but I recommend to allow 8 hours. Great views all the way up. Bit dodgy with snow at the summit, remember to bring gloves and sturdy shoes (Nike, go home).
Last summit climb can be a bit tricky, only do this of you feel absolutely confident with snow hiking and climbing.
Views from the very top don't differ too much from the views from the 2nd highest plateau.
I did the circuit so I started at the 2md bus stop and ended at the 1st near Dove Lake.
A hike to remember for life, simply stunning!
Listen to the staff at the info centre, they peovide great advice and feedback. Bring required safety items, gloves, good shoes and a fully charged camera :) Enjoy!
