It was fun going up in the lift and enjoying the nice view, You can choose to purchase the photograph that is taken before you get off at the top. Some very nice handicraft shops at the top too.

It is a nice trip. Nice views and good facilities to eat and have a fun day. It gets very full in the weekends so try to be early if you want to do stuff like horseback riding or visiting the mountain.
