  • Beautiful place to go and hike. Was a lot of fun. But have to drive there for sure
  • Breathtaking views! It was really good decision to hike over 10 km up. You can admire a gorgeous Orhid lake and totally relax. Silence over there was kind of meditation.
  • There are spots where you can take panoramic views in of the coast below. Beautiful.
