It is a stunning sight, especially if you get close enough on the upper plateau. There are lots of nearby trails you could hike on towards the peak base. You take endless photos because of how the sky highlights it--the clouds, the sunlight, the time of day--it's ever changing. It is often shrouded in clouds, we hear, but we were lucky to see it be mostly visible for 3 days. It's poignant to know that over 500 people have died trying to climb it, 2/3 of them on the way back down. We are sorry we didn't have time for the museum in town that details its history. We heard from mountaineers climbing nearby that it's most often clear in the early morning and then clouds up midday when most of the tourists are on nearby peaks.
