The small museum is free and very nicely done. The staff is very friendly and helpful. The tour was very interesting and we'll paced. The hike is more strenuous than was indicated but the leader took his time. There is a final climb through a crevice that not everyone can do. Be aware that there are no longer 3 tours a day. The one at 11 has been cancelled.

I don't want to spoil any of the details of this museum for anyone who hasn't gone. Please just check it out. It is really interesting.

Amazing, mystical place. The tour guides are knowledgeable, interesting and enthusiastic and this is infectious. You get to go all over the site, including the Hidden Staircase - quite a rugged climb, and I've been on a few hard hikes. The whole area is eerily quiet and feels different. The views from there are incredible. The connection between ancient peoples and a much more ancient volcanic fissure is fascinating. A must-see if you're in the area. Be prepared for a long hike and a long tour but you will be amply rewarded.
