During a guided tour (yes we fell jnto a tourist trap), we were forced to go and see the site of this town wipe away by an earthquake. Place filled with souvenir stalls and people taking selfies with.... more »
These people suffered so much from the massive avalanche that so many people lost their lives. There is some little restaurant that have really good food. You do need 1/2 soul for the bathroom. The views are breath taking and the gift shops there have really reasonable prices. There are some poor people in the area that will ask for money and remember to be picky to who you give money to. Bring lots of water.
Having the feeling of standing above more than 25000 lost lifes.... is quite unsettling and makes you feel so sorry for the tragedy that occured here 48 years ago
