I was skeptical when my wife mentioned wanting to visit here. My first glimpse of this bird wiped away all skepticism. The sound overwhelms you as you walk through the gate and just the sheer enthusiasm of the other visitors is contagious. Just go. I...More

This place is a joke. Supposed to be open only 2 times per day - 1 hour in morning between 05:30-06:30 and in evening 5-6pm. I showed up to the gate at 05:40am, gate was locked and there were a few other tourists outside. We...More
