The rooms were super authentic and the entire surroundings of the area were so green and fresh. We went on a 16km river raft which was super fun and we also took a dip in the clear river near our stay. We ended the day with a nice dinner. It was truly a beautiful experience.
All the three meals were super satisfying and filling here. The views were just exceptional because of the height at which it is located.
