  • Second time j going. The path to get there offers some interesting points of view. On-site Sunday there is a market with Asian specialties. Not bad but not surprising for someone who has the habit of eating Asian. A little d craft hmong, some fruits, flowers, and local juice. A museum that I was not see, a bakery, a snack bar at the entrance, and a restaurant at the bottom of the village with a beautiful view. Nice view also from the Church. The inhabitants are rather nice, noted that during the week it must all be in the fields. So nothing d extraordinary, but nice anyway d go eat.
