Come to this area for breathtaking views of rice terraces and volcanoes. Rain or shine this area is beautiful and worth a visit. The journey will most likely be a day trip, we came with a hired driver. Unfortunately, the area is not easily accessible. In our experience the roads to this area are in need of improvement. Apparently the local government of the nearby town does not prioritize road maintenance. There was multiple delays due to bad road conditions.
