The hidden

It is a shrine which places far from human habitation. In the last mile, you have to go through a huge rock fissure. It was amazing.
You need a vehicle to get there. There was public transportation (route bus), but it is not suitable for tourists because it runs twice a day.
A 15-minute walk from the carport will take you to the foot of the mountain and a further 20 minutes up the stone stairs and through the forest. The angle was steep and I needed sneakers. On the end of the woods, around the top, lofty rocks were there. Went through the crack of the rock with using hands, there was a small simple shrine having another huge rock behind it. The atmosphere was calm and mysterious.

when we went to Karakama there was a large group of people there praying for someone sick, but I believe it is empty most part of the day, the temple is small but the rocks around it makes it really unique ! also there is a small waterfall nearby !
*hard to reach without a car (as long as i know)
