Exciting 30-minute cable car ride starting from the heart of the town into the "heavens" with a mix of flat and steep inclines - would probably be an even more amazing ride if we saw the attractions which were clearly marked on the brochures handed over at the entrance. However, foggy winter conditions limited visibility of "majestic" landscapes from above so the ride was more like flying up into a whirl of clouds.
Mid-level should allow visitors to walk up to the cave (which is basically an opening between a mountain) but given (again, the conditions) not only could we not see the cave, we could not walk the trail either.
Top-level should give a good view of the flora that grows out of the mountain. In the winter, it was snowy as hell but remained still interesting to tropical inhabitants like ourselves. However, would probably be even more alluring in the summer or spring when all of it is in full color (instead of simply white). Walking on glass and seeing all of nature's glory underneath it was another seemingly thrilling activity to embark on except it was closed for the winter.
Definitely NOT worth a visit in the winter - especially given the top level waiting area does not even have a heating system in place to keep visitors warm...
