Amazing place to go ! We went at 9:30 we were the first to arrive. Guys at the entrance were super nice and explained us a lot of things about the place.

It was a beautiful place to see and hike around. It's $5 to get in. Sneakers rather than sandals would have been better. There are some sharp tight areas. It is very beautiful though.
