Amazing view of the mountains. The hike to the hut was tiring but exciting. Enjoyed the walk to the skeleton pass and enjoy the cool waters at the natural pools. Orgasmic experience.

Hope this will guide you to your adventurous tour. The nature is untouched and at its best, l felt peace in mind, heart and the fresh air is unbelievable. Breathe-taking sceneries as you hike to the mountains.

A super-friendly lady at the trailhead office, gorgeous views of the valley and mountains, a well-maintained hut to stay in, and numerous hikes to caves and peaks within a few hours! Definitely make time to stay in the park at least one night.
