Did this as a 3 day backpack with an Israeli that I met along the route. Fairly big distance (33km one way) and over 3000m/10,000' of total elevation gain. Ruins are way at the top of the ridge. Fairly decent if you haven't seen a lot already.
Great Scenery, Great Trek Date Climbed: Nov 28, 2008
We hiked it on our own, without using mules or horses, had a great time even though it rained every night. The days ranged from cloudy to hot and sunny. Lots of steep climbs and descents, few tourists compared to other routes.
