This is a great experience to drive all the way round, but the bulk of it is on dirt roads and forest, so a 4x4 is preferable! Lovely remote villages and wildlife. Note: no access on roads Sundays, but you can park at the start.

Dry land with meadows is far less attractive than rainy season with water in the lake or winter with ice. There are some dusty roads with pedestrians or people with bikes. They can travel around and visit a kind of a museum – restaurant in...More

It's really worth to read into this lake before you visit, you don't want to miss out on the romantic legends and the interesting phenonomens in and around the lake. To me this is one of those places that touches me, straight to the heart....More
