Beautiful scenery. Recommended excursion

Ramses was our guide and at all times I was worried that we would feel comfortable. The worst were the 2h queue to get on the cable car but it was certainly worth the wait. To get to the cave and monastery was a little hard road walking although calmly it is beautiful and to enjoy. The cave with many stairs and does not have much to do since there are no large stalactites or stalagmites

Unfortunately we could not visit any of the booked destinations due to the weather. But the friendly and competent TourGuide alternatively put together a great program that was great. Many thanks for the great experience.
