    Writer's Review

    The view from the top is a must-see. The contrast between the blue river on one side, and the arid land on the other is a marvel and shows the best of man and nature collaboration. The villages around are quite receptive to foreigners so you don't be surprised to find yourself on camel back riding and making friends with the kids.
