A wonderful place for a family picnic!!
The climb atop the hill is tremendous fun; and a bit taxing on your thighs. The rock-cut sculptures take your breath away when they come into view! The really adventurous can hike all the way to the other end of the hill; be sure to pause to wonder at the vegetation that thrives atop the dry hill.
About a few hundred meters adjacent to the hill you have a small cave with beautiful sculptures! When you go there be mindful of snakes and bats!
Don't forget to take a bagful of puffed rice for the plentiful fishes in the pond!
Biologists among you might be surprised to see a weird kind of big green frogs in the pond (difficult to spot among the green lotus leaves) - not seen elsewhere - at least by me.
