Tips for you
A farm high up in the mountain. Went in end September 2015, weather is coolly. Be sure to be there early. Bus loads of tourist start flocking in after 11am. I was there at around 10am, that was when there was slightly lesser people. Views was magnificant. Sheeps roam freely by the mountain side. Feels like a mini Switzerland. Once you bought a ticket and go through the gantry, green patches of grass with sheeps awaits you. They aren't shy, feel free to sayang or pet them. I was there on a weekday and there was no show on a weekday. During weekends, there is public show time when the sheeps perfom and shaving of sheeps fur. Ideal place for wedding shots. Windmills is also there. Take more photos of the greenery in there. There isn't much food options in there but there is a small hawker outside the exit.
