Traveler Tips Wear comfortable and sturdy shoes, preferably sports shoes. Floors are uneven and have thorny grasses. Few crevices have insects, lizards, and snakes, too. Morning hours are the best time for clicking impressive snaps of its grounds and surroundings. Make sure to eat before you arrive here. There are no food stalls or eateries around. However, there is a small shop that sells all items at exorbitant prices.
