Beautiful scenery and landscapes here are the ideal destination for photographers and painters. Standing down from above, you will be startled and ask yourself is this the work of humans or god. After lunch, a short walk between small villages gives you the possibility to meet and talk with friendly and innocent local people. It’s great to see barefoot chubby children following their mothers to the mountains where they cultivate crops. Here, many shy children try to hide their faces behind the fences so that visitors from different cities cannot see them.
