  • Was their with family once and another time with friends. The road going their is far but cemented. the lakes are majestic. it surroundings can give you a calming effect. a highlight when going there ...  more »
  • Nice, very steep road leading to the lakes. Not a great deal to do, but pleasant enough. Nice place to have lunch. 
  • Hired a van. was so engrossed exploring the place we almost missed our boat ride. nothing much to do here but just relax, and explore the view and manicured trails.
