  • Must visit!! Half a day is recommended for this amazing national park. Its amazing, beautiful nature. You will need at least 1.5 hours to complete the full circle. The waterfall that’s located inside the national park is just 1-2 km walk but with all the beautiful scenery along the way you will reach there in no time. The information center is very helpful.
  • Nice place to visit during sunset. Beautiful mountain view. There are few parkings, we decided to stop on P1 (you have to pay for it). Just next to this parking there is a view point and trail across park. I recommend to see the waterfall and small, Modesta church too. 1.5h to see the most interesting points should be enough.
