  • You can go on tours or on their own, reach is not complicated, mobility with car type there are couster and 4 passenger cars. arriving at the village, one has to go walking or hiring a motorcycle taxi or collective.

  • A place very beautiful, more what we enjoy was the history in if. The downside is the lack of control of trade, photographers on each side, there are riding horses, and local restaurants whose food is regular, careful can be conned, always ask before you buy.
