WOW. That is all I have to say. This was breathtaking and well worth the effort. Make sure you are well acclimated before you go or you WILL have issues. The campsite amenities are wonderful and each spot offers incredible views. It does get cold at night, so bring warm night clothes. And do not forget your poncho or rain gear if you go in the rainy season, it is so wet. Oh and, please wear sunscreen. My boyfriend did not put it on the first day and had mega burn!
