The road leading from the main road to the top of the mountain has not been hardened, but the gravel road has been washed by the rain and left some grooves. If you didn’t drive SUV, it's recommended to walk there. It's only a few minutes' walk away.
According to local people, the best view angle of landscape is at the mountain top of Unit14. Actually, it's up to you to feel the difference from different angles.
