It's a place of fairy tales and magic. Water so clear you can see 40 foot tall trees completely submerged.
As you are ushered through the 295 sq. km and 16 terraced lakes, the air smells so crisp and fresh that you feel as if you might have discovered it yourself, despite the other visitors that share the walkway.
