I visit the place last Sunday and can only say this; do not come Friday to Sunday or public holiday's even if it gets better as you near the top, the way up wasn't fun as we sometimes stood still for 10-20 minutes (see pics). 

Our guide assured us that Monday to Thursday was much better, even if you get a time later you will be let in when you arrive and try to be there before 7 and especially if on a weekend. And to anyone who goes there, the guide is paid by a tip our friends had recommended 200 per person we gave [of course] more...as it wasn't her fault we arrived at 8.30.

BTW there is no shops so make sure to bring enough water!

I already thought, that it must be busy. Hopefully they keep social distance and masks on, at the Photos! 🙊
