    It has beautiful places to walk, we rained a little. There are temples in. And nice places to go knowing the friendly people of information. We were the only non Asian tourists so we draw attention, there are restaurants before coming, rich and very good. Mountaineering clothing stores. Very picturesque. Health service is everywhere, in the temples should be cleaner, they are more careless. Many trails, pleasant architecture
