  • It is a scenic spot in the snowy mountain state, mainly to see the vertical cliffs that extend and look at the sea, the most famous of which is the season ice waterfall season, the season is not as beautiful as the mountains all over the place. There are also spring streets where you can soak up the spring, and it's best to stay here for a night and enjoy the beautiful scenery and spring.
