Fantastic gorge with beautifull sights of snovy peaks. The river inside gorge is so clean like a mountain crystal or diamond.

Any season go there to enjoy the scenery but be sure there is a blue sky 😅. There is even a place to stay just at the entrance of the park

It's amazingly beautiful. Mountains, rivulet, forests, jungle trails...all within 45 minutes from the city. Entry is cheap. There are hardly any administrative arrangements there. One restaurant, that too not very good. Carry your own stuff to eat.
