Great view and stunning scenery in winter. There's a elevator to go down about 100m for better view. You can see the waterfall basin from there too.

Breath taking views. During winter you can see the waterfall partially frozen, snow and the trees with no leaves. Overall a beautiful sight that goes perfectly with the lake visit.
