Don't miss the artistic carvings in the mine, including a model of the Great Wall of China. On your journey, you’ll pass through crystal valley, as well as a tunnel with crystals in its walls.

  • Excellent place for picnic. One advice that you should bring food from home. There a nice covered area to eat.
  • I would not mention the history of this place here because it could break the suspence of you. Just wanna say this place is awesome. If you wanna go here than cooke and take food with you. Because the food of that area is not very well.
