Absolutely beautiful a geat experience. We dont usually go in for the organized mass tours, but no option here. The local towns 'association' (read mafia) have complete control and monopoly on access and get very aggressive (google for blogs), with anyone who is not with a tour guide.
We paid 350,000 each for a tour that also included extras at a coffee planation, rice fields, lots of food and transport. cheaper prices can be found.
