      ... on a rock, a giant, white statue of sitting Buddha. On the right side of the summit courtyard, a large Stupa and the third option, Aradhana Gala. Aradhana Gala is a steep rock with steel railings and small footsteps to help pilgrims (who aren't seasoned climbers) climb to the top. The views up here are rewarding and well worth the work. Now, back down the stairs, and to the hotel... And it has a pool. Cool water. Thank you! And then....... The time I thought it was safe to open my ...

Sitting in the shade for a while, I was approached by a mother and her daughters, who said nothing, but her husband eagerly stood nearby ...

      ... and totally unspoilt that wander all around and out into the country. The bikes had no gears ( good) and no gel seats ( very bad by end of day!) it was hot, hard work but a fab way to see a lot in a day up close.
