  • The ruined castle walking track starts with really long stairs, which you go down. But, obviously, when you come back, you go up, and this is the hardest part of the track. Also, the last 600m to reach the ruined castle has a lot of stairs too, but not as many. Climbing the rocks of the ruined castle is challenging, but worth it. Just be very careful, and watch out for animals. The way between the stairs is really easy and beautiful! This is one of the most beautiful tracks we did! And it's for free!!! BTW, there was a lot of mud on the way. If possible wear waterproof shoes 😉
  • Be careful of track changes, new obstacles and slippery mudslide areas after the recent storms. It was muddy when I went that day. Great views. There are many steps both uphill and downhill but overall the walk was not overly challenging.
