We thoroughly enjoyed this 5km walk on the suspended walkway above the deep ravines. After the walk you take a bus 10km back to the start. The views were wonderful and our guide known as Timmy was very knowledgeable and we enjoyed learning the history of the place.There is a restaurant at the start and a natural lake. We recommend this as a great day out.

It was an amazing experience. We wanted to visit independantly but in the end did a guided tour with Aloratur and we were so glad that we did. Our guide, Paul, was incredibly knowledgeable, informative and entertaining. Without a doubt the experience was more fulfilling because of the background information plus the additional anecdotes. The tour was professionally organised and safety measures were always observed without anything feeling too controlled.
