  • Honestly I thought I glimpsed it. Following the guide was the ancient glaciers that work was polishing the stones. There are no peak in the mountains, but only plateaus which confirms the strength of nature; This tour we do ATV or 4 x 4. I did both. It's really surreal, spectacular, unimaginable. With nature not measured strength.
