  • Travelled and lived in many parts of the World, this Nature Reserve is in my own humble opinion the most spectacular and scenic places of them all. The scenery is just fantastic and moreover, the local people you'll meet there are friendly and welcoming. While Visiting Make sure you get the boat trips to the glaciers, absolutely amazing and Amazing experience. Will definitely come back to this beautiful part of our Globe One Day. Highly recommended for those who loves to stay connected with Nature, we only wish we had allocated more time there for more trekking. ❤
