  museum and butterflies
by sandysmith

The actual walk down the valley to the small museum is not as long - 15 mins at the most, but if you do this section after the other one then by the time you have seen the small natural history museum it will be time for a lunch stop at the restaurant here - first time I've ever had chips INSIDE an omelete!

Inside the museum you can learn all about the butterflies and their life cycle and also see how they cling to the bark of the trees. Guides used to clap their hands to make them fly into the air but this is now strongly discouraged as numbers have been dwindling iin recent years - due to the numbers of tourists probably scaring them off.
