... breakfast and decided what we wanted to do. We decided to rent bikes again and go to some more places. We wanted to go to a look out point called Pukara and then cycle to the Devils throat. We cycled along a nice easy route to Pukara and walked up a hill/mountain. We had a good look out over some mountains. It was very pretty.
