We learned so much about the amazing construction of this dam. Our tour guide was excellent, and she explained the inner workings of the turbines in a way that was clear and understandable. The tour was 45 minutes long and very interesting. Highly recommend!

You don't have to book any tour, or pay any money to walk on the bridge, look around the Dam and take photos . Just make sure you have a hat, cold water bottle, as the sun is very strong. And enjoy . :-)

Which hotel are you looking at? You can call the hotel and ask them for a mini fridge. Sometimes you can get one for free, and sometimes they charge $5 a day. Most of the hotels we stayed at had mini fridges.
