Photo Expedition in Parang Mountains

After about two hours, the trail forks and the northern option gets travelers above the glacial valley. After a dizzying descend through a ravine, we got to a succession of amazing lakes, some above others and linked by streams and waterfalls. Photo opportunities are everywhere you look, being surrounded by massive ridges, barren peaks, green lush meadows with colorful flowers, sheep herds passing through valleys and so much more…
