When you’re looking at the Three Sisters from the viewing platform, walk to your left and follow the path which starts after maybe 20 metres on your right. The path is mainly even with some steps at the end. A short dead-end path leads you to one of the “sisters” where lots of travellers couldn’t resist the urge to engrave their name. It is also here where the Giant Staircase starts.

Tip: If you can, return to the main viewing platform just after the sun has set. The sky is not yet black and the Three Sisters should already be illumniated. This makes great photography. Don’t forget your tripod.
