Very interesting place. Enjoyed it. The views from the top are fantastic. This is one of the most beautiful lake views in the world. And the aura of this place is really nice. Come there and feel it. By the way. the restaurant on the top is not bad. Quite nice food is served there.

Most stunning views, and service, ever seen. NOT cheap! You can tell the place usually serves millionaires. So if you'd like to be treatred like one, go there. But bring two credit cards!!
