    Hint: The exponential function is the inverse of the natural logarithm.

    I do it in this way:

    e^e = ln ( ln ( e^x +4))
    e^e^e = ln (e^x +4)
    e^e^e^e = e^x +4
    x = 20

    Is it correct? Or is there any others more easier way?

    Correct. x = ln(e^e^e^e - 4) = 20.08553691561896
