Nice place to stop for views of the lake and take some photos. A place to stop for a toilet break on the way through and take some photos rather than a destination. Overpriced souvenir shop but a nice cafe.More

I visited this place last month and wasn't impressed or fascinated by the views. It's something normal. If your a person who like such viewing platforms, then visit it. Else do not waste money on travel and entrance.More
