This place surprised with its beauty beyond my expectation. Descend through pine trees to find a serene lake. Decently maintained.

As the name goes, it is a steep slope covered by evergreen trees. At the bottom, a beautiful lake is there. Horse ride is available to take a stride beside the lake. People say many films were shot here.
