Great stopover for the Devils nose train ride if you go on the Sunday train ride. Why? Awesome local markets. One is a fruit and vege market where the aromas of herbs fill the air. The other market is the local bulkmarket where they buy wheats and fruits in bulk.
The main attraction is the Devisl nose train ride that goes down the moutain in a series of switchbacks (basically an extension of train line that aloows the train to travel in reverse). You are allowed to ride on the roof which allows for great views. The ride was cool, with some nice scenery, i had a beautiful day so it made it that much better. See the pics.
