Wise to hire a 4wd but could reach the top in a car if driven with care. Outstanding views when you get there. Very peaceful place to be. We went first thing on a morning just to watch the sun rise.

We started our 'walk' from the centre of Agrassi. I'm in my 40's and although I like walking on the flat, I don't usually do anything to strenuous. It wasn't easy but the views and experience was well worth it. It took us 2 1/2...More

This is a difficult place to visit. I've done it in a four by four and on foot. By car is a hairy ride. On foot watch out for snakes. The 17th century monastery is in ruins. The pretty white church sometimes locked. Try and...More
