Make sure you have good shoes or boots as the path is rocky with lots of gravel to slide on. My wife and I are both 70 and it took us about 25 minutes to climb to the top, taking it steadily. Once there you can see down into the crater where people have written names, love messages etc using stones to make the letters. We chose to walk round the rim which allows you to see all round the area as you go. This took us another 30 minutes as we kept stopping to enjoy the splendid views. Going down is in some ways harder as it's easier to slide on the lose gravel. Just take it steadily and it's not that hard though. I wouldn't recommend the trip for small children, however, who might suddenly demand to be carried!

Good walk up don't go on a windy day especially if you're scared of heights. Lovely views. Wear good walking shoes or trainers with a good trip as can be slippery.

It's an uphill toil, don't go on a cloudy day and wear sensible footwear, can be a bit brezzy at top, I would go early morning or late afternoon when cooler. Nuff said

The short hike (30 mins.) up is well worth it and the views from the top make for good memories of your visit. Walk around the volcano caldera and enjoy a 360 degree tour! Remember to bring your camera along but be especially careful if you try to take selfies near the edge of the crater!
