Just below the peak lies a guest house run by the Zion Hill Baptist Church, and from there a stairway with 374 steps climbs to the mountaintop cross, which was erected in 1995.

Along the way are small prayer rooms for solitude-seeking pilgrims, and there is an odd boat-shaped chapel on the peak, evoking the biblical tale of Noah’s ark. It is also a religious place for the Christians where many mythological legends were sleeping. So, it is advisable to take some rest, and use the restroom at the foot of the mountain before going up since there is no such facility at the top of the mountain. Along the hiking route, visitors will catch the opportunity to admire the mix of natural beauty, listen to the rustling in the jungle and the sound of birds, and impressive small prayer rooms set aside the way climb to the mountain.
