This place is charming!! I spent 4 full days in there, and even though it was always raining and foggy, i would do it again!! Having said that...it was worth it my 4 days..and actually i could have spent even more. One of tourists’ review from TripAdvisor says like this. Sometimes, mist make the mountain more mystery and charming.
Fresh and green tree leaves, birds, nature, warm climate after April make your spring trip more enjoyable.
