The route is narrow, mountain road. Without traffic, we get there in two hours.

35 per person to enter the village. Parking is free in a few lots along the road. As we were debating to park or continue to drive further into the one street village, a young woman said she’s parking space opposite fm her home for diners. She then got into her small white car and led us in. I wondered out loud why didn’t she ride a bike or motorbike for easy maneuvering. The village would be better off without cars altogether.
