  • In a natural, rustic atmosphere of discovering the wonders of evolution and its impact on this ancient forest. It is a walk of approximately a 1-hour knowing this transformation that is simply stunning in its natural state. The energy and peace that exists is indescribable. Place no doubt to meet and visit. The road to the place is in perfect condition.
