"Hiked from the Montana Blanca car park Sunday afternoon up to Altavista. 5 am wake up to summit for the sun rise. 'Twas cold and windy...and altitude was definitely a factor. Absolutely worth it. " - scottheaney, Mar 9, 2015
"Första av många berg som skall bestigas. Så varför inte börja med ett högt. Tog och sov över på vandrarhemmet på toppen, rekommenderar starkt. Den natt himlen och både sol uppgång och solnedgången är svår att slå." - patrikottvar, Dec 17, 2014
"I started from the TF21 road and having reached the upper station I waited for my wife Sarah and the two children Laura and Celine. They took the cable car. I had to wait for them about 45 minutes. From there we climbed together to the top. At that time, being about 6 hours on that tour, I got a splitting headache. After the descent with the cable car I felt much better within half an hour. After all a wonderful tour and my first experience with a slight altitude sickness." - LordOfStars, Oct 9, 2013
