  • about the Pagoda itself is nothing. but access to this via the stairs is just a disaster. around the 2 km you see nothing else as positions of the locals and continue to attract you to the sleeve but something to buy. of nature falls over the entire path nothing because of the stalls which sight completely off. so the cable lift is well worth the money!!!! We still had the luck, that it's out of season, and there are not too many positions were open. but in the high season there will be according to our guide so many people that can walk you all with the mass.
