While the view from the site is quite nice, who cares about the statute? It sits on a rock by the road above the gorge and river. But that’s about it. There are so many gorgeous views along this road there’s not much point in...More

Aside from this small statute, there is no other touristic attractions in the neighbourhood. The green valley view is nice, and perhaps one would expect a wonderful red valley view in the Autumn.

It is just a small statute by the roadside near a bus stop. Not anything spectacular but the view overlooking the mountain and the valley was magnificent.
