Route/Trail notes

I actually only got to do the first half of the walk, as bad weather that was forecast, but did not eventuate, led to cancellation of the bus I had arranged. This first half was great, if involviing lots of climbing. walking across the sulphurous, steaming surface ofthe mountain was very eerie. I think it was Mt Doom in the Lord of the rings movies.


Do you need any permits? What's the cost?
