  • Worth the trek up to the top but don't do it at midday (I did and dehydrated along with sunstroke!). Take a hat with straps and closed shoes. Enjoy the tough walk up then run down. The views and experience are once in a life time.
  • Must go in Namibia. Be there for sunrise
  • Suggestive locations, the climb is slightly challenging and well worth it!
