We tried to get here early- but only made it just before 9 on a Sunday and already 33 degrees! It wasn't as crowded as I expected. This hike is definitely not for the faint hearted but if you take your time it is doable....More

attractions, the surrounding nature, parks, gardens,
temples, and shrines provide less-visited spaces for
