It is inevitable to go to the mountains in Monterrey, a town characterized by mountains. A very beautiful view was waiting. The ropeway waited for a system trouble on the day, but if it goes smoothly, it will climb 1000 meters in 4 minutes. There were plenty of places to see inside the cave, and the two-kilometer journey was very quick. After that, the museum dropped in and returned to the starting point. It would be great if there was something else besides the cave ... I hope that only two more people can apply and I need to pay for two people alone.
