This world-famous hike demands stamina, but those who undertake the climb will be rewarded with impressive close up views of the three granite towers. Landscapes are rich and varied during the eight-hour walk to reach the summit: from undulating countryside scenes through to eerie lenga forests and riverside scree slopes. The last hour of the walk is the most challenging, when you must ascend the narrow paths and hike through a moraine section of loose rock. It is important to note that exposed sections of the path can attract fierce winds. At the summit, take in one of the most magnificent views in the park, before descending the same route back to your hotel. It is sensible to come dressed prepared for unpredictable weather, with water and windproof clothing as well as worn in walking shoes or boots.
