This was not on our agenda but became part of our trip as our original destination was blocked by a mudslide. So glad we got to see this beautiful landscape! Must do it in a four-wheel drive though!

This is a long ride going up mountains through a zigzag street, to enjoy a view for the valley, the mountains, the clouds. Best to see both with clouds at morning or without on afternoon.
