    A great place to unwind after a long day at work. There are numerous trails to choose from. Fresh air and the sounds of a small waterfall trickling down the smooth rocky surface along the eye-catching greenery richness. The top view is stunning, with fluffy candy-like clouds floating gently through the breeze early in the morning. The blue jewelled pond reflecting the sky may be enticing, bringing a sense of calm and peace! Strongly recommended!

    An excellent spot to unwind and get away from the hustle and bustle of the city. You can take a variety of trails. Crisp air and the sound of a little waterfall cascading down the smooth stone surface are accompanied by stunningly lush vegetation. Wonderful clouds that resemble fluffy candies can be seen floating through the breeze in the early morning from the top view. The blue jewelled pond that reflects the sky in a pleasant and tranquil manner may be fascinating to certain people.
