My two group mates did not - one got a headache for which he drank large amounts of coca tea and the other was fine.

It is truly a spectacular place. We arrived in the rain and mist and walked around and it was like being transported into some other magical realm. I suffer from vertigo so was able to lose my group and walked around by myself just feeling the vibes. Amazing!

Oh, I don't doubt that there is a bus. And I'd much prefer to take such bus, but I KNOW that if I go with my friend, she will insist on the hike. I'd much prefer getting up there the easy way and spending all day exploring the place.
