We did the red walk, it's a lot of climbing, but it's a very nice experience. You mustn't be afraid of climbing on steep chairs. Wonderful!

Maybe it can be dangerous for childen from 4-5 years old. There are many steep rope ladders. You can do a part of the tour and after you can return. But the environment is very beautiful. It is a magic place, you can tell... More
