    This was a nice scenic hike (or trek as it is called here). The trail was nicely maintained and only a few wet spots despite the fact that it had rained for days on prior to my day on the trail. However, it is so popular so you feel like you are in the line at the grocery store at times. I hiked it during the early season and there were well over 1,000 people on the trail that day. So therefore I only give it 4 stars. It was very crowded.

Horrible weather. Rainy, cloudy and fogged in. Ran the downhill simply because I was bored. Pretty fast. Finished ~1 hour before next in group and ~3 hours before our bus was supposed to arrive. Picked up a lot of trash along route. So many discarded, wet tissues!
