  • Register your name here in the book at the side of the timber building (30 June 2019) The elevation of Prayer Mountain is 1,430 metres above sea level and the height of the hike from the trailhead is about 340 metres. We started the trek at 7.26am at the trailhead where we had to sign in the Visitors Book. It was an easy trek to reach the Chapel at about 8.20am. We took a short break at the Chapel which was along the track up. After the short rest, the trek up remained easy until about 300 metres before the summit, that was where the challenge began. The slope here was steep and ropes were provided to help hikers. Finally, we reached the summit at about 8.46am - a total time of 1 hour 20 minutes from the trailhead including the resting period at the chapel. At the summit was a tall cross with solar panels and batteries by its side but we were not sure whether it was working. The view at the top was superb.
