  • Under the railway track after 25 minutes to climb mountain. It is perforated on the unusual under a tree. Step into the space inside the wider toward the top of the holes can be seen in the sky's. It is also a fairly large scale. There's a lot to be able to text but also to see the tree view within the force.
