  • A place to enjoy the cooler temperatures away from the heat of the city. Except few resorts, there are no shaded areas available. You have to have a tent if you plan to spend a day or night there. Accessible with saloon cars.

  • Amazing place. The valley is simply beautiful especially when it rains. A myriad of waterfalls and streams everywhere. Highly recommended to take a 4WD

  • Love the mountain and amazing sunsets and a hike up to the nearly the top. The cliffs are stunning and the canyon below is just incredible! The people of the village are super kind and girls will offer you home made bracelets you wont wanna miss on.

  • Great place to visit. Nice and cool with great views. The road till the up is bad but it worth it to go. You can do some climbing activities in there. I have been there once and did some activities and I had great time

  • Absolutely one of the most beautiful and not touristy places i've bin in my life! You can (easily) drive up with a normal rental car. 4x4 is not recommended.
