It is beginners trek involves some amount of rock climbing too.

Its a weekend / Day trek. One can return the same day or if you wish to stay at the top you need to stay in caves or carry a tent.
What to carry
Make sure you wear something light and loose because sometimes you might have to take the big steps to climb and jeans won't allow to do that.
Carry sufficient water - We were out of water as we consumed it all while reaching the top. On top you can find the tank which provides the clean water so you can refill it.
Food - Carrying snacks, fruits and energy bars is always the good idea while trekking. You never know when you might need them.
Sunscreen - If you don’t want to get tanned.
