In the language of the indigenous people of this area, tourists are called "Minga", which means "ants". Regarding this photo it will become obvious why this term was chosen. It isn't forbidden to climb the sacred rock, however, locals are happier if you don't. Too many people have died of heart attacks or chasing their hats over the edge.
