This was not really something special! The lakes were more orange at the time we visited, spent more time in the park instead watching birds!

If you really want to see it, then go, but it was a long trip for a bad encounter with rude tour guides want to be, and their little mafia. At a moment felt not safe having 5/6 guys coming to you asking for money...More
