Climbing - You don´t need to be experienced
Sleep over on the same day
any are planning their climb so they can sleep over at one of the stations at the trails and continue early morning to the top. Others go up and down the same day. Expect that the stations are fairly simple but it's part of the charm. On weekends in July and August it can get crowded both on the track and in the cabins so you should reserve accommodation. Therefore, try to climb the mountain during weekdays.
Good luck and “stop” altitude sickness
At the track you will also find tree trunks where small denomination coins are stuck in the cracks. Referring to popular belief this is done partly for good luck during the climb while others want this to “stop” altitude sickness.

At the top, you can also walk around the crater, it takes about an hour the summit is a 1-hour hiking trail That circles the crater. Hikers then begin the descent, Reaching the 5th Station before noon.
