Stunning view, definitely would recommend. It’s a bit of a journey up if you’re walking, we took a car. There was a small table selling local trinkets and textiles if that’s what you’re interested in.

Catch a cab up as its safer and quite cheap for the there & back. I'd recommend going in the late morning. I was there in the afternoon and the Sun makes it hard to take great photos. But definitely worth doing. See if you...More
