The first place that we visited on our trip around was the Park and it was worth the visit totally. We enjoyed the nature and amazing features that the park has. From cliffs to canyons and mysterious places that have dazzling views of the landscape. It was amazing to be at the park and enjoyed all the marvel of the place.

This place had a beautiful nature park with various types of flowers and plants. I enjoyed walking around the park and inhaling clean air. The lush greenery was refreshing not to mention the cool shades and a sell-mowed park for relaxing. I had a wonderful time here.

This park is just another Disney land. I especially loved living in the mountain huts that were so cozy and warm. The hosts were very friendly and had nice stories about the park. It was a very restful trip.

This park is the perfect destination for the whole family. My kids loved watching the wildlife, especially the adorable deers and wild goats. The whole scenery, plus the pleasant weather is a great way to spend a holiday.
