  • Simply stunning. Breathtaking cable car ride, eerily blue lake, good facilities with friend 3 and helpful staff. It was a 3 hour detour that was well worth it.
  • Stunning place - visited at the end of August and the waterfall was beautiful. If possible visit also lac de guap. This will make a fabulous day out
