This delightfully remote place is set in a rocky hollow replete with grazing cattle, sheep and horses, an easy 10-minute walk from the cable-car station.

All dishes in the restaurant are prepared with organic ingredients.

Regular meditation, climbing and qigong courses are also held here. Note: it's accessible only by cable car.
