Each time I pass near these location I stop to take hundreds of pictures. Loads of places where you can stop and take pictures, buy souvenirs, eat traditional food. All you need is free time and a full battery.

No water next to trails. Bears. Blacks goats. Vicious local tourists. No beer and poor food at the huts.
