  • Beautiful nature! The views are to die for! The good thing is that you are still close to civilization, there are a couple of very basic but nice local bars there, too. There is a river at the bottom of the valley with a local beach - huge rocks where people sunbathe and even swim in the river pool. The recommended descending route (there are directing boards everywhere) takes a couple of hours. It's a nice walk, but please, no sandals! Good walking shoes are a must!
  • Beautiful here! I recommend getting a bus or taxi up to the top to the hotel and walking down to the village. Definitely try the roasted chestnuts as well.
