The day after the hike we squeezed 3 in a tuk tuk and took it up to the top station (covered in cloud so no view) and back along the sights on the way back. One of which was a very strange setup, lots of toys, fruit and CDs being sold along the road next to Echo Point, where you can shout at the lake and it echoes back.. Fun for 5 minutes anyway. More entertaining ...
