Pleasant walk to the river bank and towards the gorge. Tree lined canopy. Colours were spectacular. The rows of little statues were charming. Very tranquil place to visit if you have some time to spare. Highly recommended

I don't understand why there's hardly anyone at this place. The gorge is absolutely beautiful that it's breathtaking. Keep walking until you pass the little statues dressed in red and you'll be on a path right next to the gorge, or abyss as it's often...More
