Very taxing. No real reason to go unless your an avid hiker, climber and want to check off this climb. Pix could be great but we, struggling the altitude and leg pain, had little time to enjoy because of pushing. Guided tours in Peru usually...More
Easy going. No noise of cars or motorcycles. Nice footpath to walk around the island. Very friendly people. Off course people want to earn money with selling items.

As others have mentioned, it's not so much the steepness of the hike because the path is good and fairly easy, but the altitude that gets you.

We just took our time and stopped frequently to catch our breath. The views on the island are lovely!
