If you are fairly fit, you should not miss this route. We took the cable car down to the valley. The ride down itself was interesting. And we walked up the mountain again taking this scenic route. It's a very interesting walk (uphill of course!)...More

Words cannot describe the beauty of the natural beauty of the sites. The fog could actually serve to make the sites / view so magically enchanted. Highly recommended for photographers....
