  • The Castle itself is an ordinary castle but the environment is very nice. The problem is you need suitable shoes because there is a lot of stairs from car parking to the Castle and the route itself is very slippy. Sometimes a mountain climbing stick is useful. There are hawkers that offer some bamboo sticks.
  • Historical and mysterious place mist of the time the whether is foggy, affter walking across too many steps you will reach to a castle with out exact data about it and different story people say about that. Landscapes are really amazing you are in central of jungle.
