We did a 3 hour trail ride in the park. Had lunch with a local family. Amazing scenery, would love to spend more time there. It is close to the city so a perfect day trip.

There are Many beautiful rocks around here. Cattle, sheep, and yaks are grazing on the grassy plain. Finding Edelweiss flowers is as fun as playing hide and seek if you visit there in July. Recommend riding a horse for an hour, trekking to a hill...More
