  • Today we were supposed to go on March 17, but Tang search from the center of the village was off 20 kilometres of road. 10 km was covered in snow. I recommend you to leave snowy or rainy weather. A section of the road.

  • Crater Lake and playing great. path was not very well made, you can see how many — but perhaps that color green water Crater Lake in shades of blue is a place you need to see your family. get out of there and eat that lunch would be the tatvan restaurants or Doner Beesley some steps six, but make sure that you won't find anywhere else in this cuisine.

  • It's hard to describe the emotions I've had when I got out the crater. First of all, I felt somewhere off-world. It was like I was on a separate planet from Earth. It's too hot, the same one as in the crater to be 3-4 different sized ice lake. In a bowl so it's very interesting the different features of the Lakes. The volcano's last eruption after the chunk of rock stacks and froze the time you can feel. In some places there are chimney steam. In addition to its natural beauty, the serenity with magnificent. indescribable.

  • Everyone needs a place to go. And both views of the pond with a natural wonder. The only problem is that way. The village road. What's what in the car leaves the rubber shock-absorber.
