And also it is a lot of small rivers, waterfalls, lakes and caves, endless fields, forests and meadows, picturesque mountain tops and hills. Also, the Department is rich for thermal springs. The travellers get much positive and relaxation from staying in these lands: they enjoy the peace and quiet so desirable for urban residents that are violated only by the birdsong.
