A very easy and comfortable walk with great views. if you do not have a fear of the dark, the experience is spine tingling and exciting but it is only for a very short walk so have no fear.Great to see history untarnished.The tunnel is worth a visit, it is amazing to see how they were built. Amazed by the hard work by the ancestors. The water from Tunnel is used for irrigation. Please have a torch with shoes before entering the tunnel. Looking to get away from the light pollution of the city. This is the spot
