Everything organized, clean, beautiful. You can visit a little museum and go down to see the lake, but for other tracks you have to spend a period walking or stay overnight. For that it must be 5 stars.

Went several times to the park, to climb the peaks, but also to hike around. There are many hikes you can do to the waterfalls. A must do when you are in the area. Some hikes require a guide.
