  • Do not carry too much, bulky items because the management will not allow you to enter the cable car
  • Dress neat, warm enough for climbing, can be easily removed if it is hot. Even in the morning or afternoon, be sure to bring your gloves, towels, and warmers on top of the mountain at about 8 degrees Celsius.
  • When walking on a climbing path, remember to take a break and not be too stressed because the distance between the steps is quite high. The place is nearly 300 meters high, so it is quite thin, you have to go slowly if not will have low blood pressure or shortness of breath.
