  • Like this place very much, everything is very serene, each scenery is endowed by nature, can only be immersive to feel, watching all the changes. The only sad thing is, see a lot of people smoke, and then throw a cigarette butts into the lake, really good heartache, such a beautiful scenery is not worth anyone trampling, hope that the management can be more perfect, for such people on the Tourism bureau blacklist!!

  • Although not in Pdatzow the most beautiful season travel, but still feel pudatso unique beauty. This natural landscape is a lot better than the artificial horseback-riding sights. Summer to have a good thing is not so cold at high altitude, but still need to wear sunscreen, otherwise it will burn.
