Definitely worth a visit. Some trains are steam, if you fancy a few smuts on your face. The queuing system at the bottom is a bit confusing and you also have to select a time to return, on your arrival at the top. It can...More

I'll be frank, initially, I wasn't too excited about taking a train to the top of the mountain, but I'm so glad I did. The views were spectacular. You can see many of the surrounding lakes. We were fortunate enough to arrive in time to...More

This is a very enjoyable ride and well worth it. Once at the top you can get to walk around and take plenty of splendid photos. It can be a little chilly at the top. So be prepared and wear good shoes. Allow about an...More
