Impressive rocks

The rocks are really impressive. You can climb down or up. You can also take the boat trips to see the rocks from a distance.

The views were breathtaking, and we were amazed at how clear the water was. We followed the marked paths and found great vistas at every turn. One of the paths lead into a cave with a huge shrine inside the cave.
