It's really excellent place to visit during winter. Not many people and if the weather is good you will be amazed by the panorama. It's really beautiful and worth coming!

Went but very poor visibility. Still fun experience because I have never been on a mound before. Worth it especially if good visibility and not too far by taxi.
