Wind, wind and chill

Very nice place to spend few hours, especially with family. Bit too windy at times. Kuravan & Kurathy sculpture is also nice.

Amazing view from the top. When I got there it was so windy and sometimes kids were not able to hold their caps. They were chasing it all over. Had a nice time and mindful of nature.
