  • A tremendously beautiful spot for a hike. The trail is 5.5 km one way with a significant incline the entire way. It took me approximately 1.5 hours for the hike up but the views were worth it! Lots of parking and a gift shop located at the base where you can soak on the hot springs. Definitely worth the visit if you are close by!
  • Gondola ride is quite expensive but the view and experience is amazing 🤩🤩🤩
