... the top was really going. This road, single lane most of the way and you had to get over if another taxi was coming in the direction, was truly carved out of rock and the surface was rock...and they actually had some guys cutting some plants along side ( why, I have no idea).
We descended after getting wind blown at the top...I was quite happy to get back to 'normal'
