A lovely drive up through the mountains , the scenery is spectacular. Almost at the highest point a visitor centre and the Homosapiens museum are to be found, We did not visit the museum as a chance meeting with a german couple gave it a massive thumbs down and said it was just a money spinning venture, which is exactly what it looks like. On through the mountains beautiful views every where and once up and in the plateau it looks like life has been the same here for centurys. A small farm zoo is also open to visitors but again do not aggree with this. a worthwhile drive for the scenery but a long and tiring route in the heat.

Review Helpfulness: 2.5 out of 5 stars
