Make no mistake, getting there isn't easy, it's a long drive, along some rough and remote roads, but so worth it. The location is absolutely awesome, every chalet is perched on the edge of the canyon with views that seem to go on forever. The sunrise and sunsets are something that have to be experienced to be believed.
Staff were incredibly friendly and helpful, nothing was too much trouble, and did I mention that the location is awesome? Rooms are basic, but clean & comfortable and built out of mainly local materials to blend into the environment, I had 2 of the most restful nights of our 11 night road trip here. Power goes off at around 11PM so a torch is a good idea for finding your way around the chalet if needed during the night, it's VERY dark, with only the stars for illumination, but I'm not complaining!
The food was outstanding, I'm amazed that world class dishes can be produced in such a remote place. Everything has to be brought in, the closest town is a couple of hundred Km away, the owners and staff really have done an awesome job.
I can't wait to go again.
