Up The Hill To Pray

In the morning we were at the lower river level & moored up ready for our trip up to the top of the dam to the visitors centre. Back on a coach again but a shorter ride. Thousands of people up at the visitors centre & quite a lot of military security to go through to get there.

Unfortunately the pervading mist that hangs around took the edge off some of the views but a truly amazing construction. It was a pity that we weren't allowed to walk across the top of the dam but we did get close. Even managed to locate a geocache right at the top of the viewing area.

Back on the boat again for lunch & to continue on down river. The boat did stop again for an extra excursion to a local village but we decided to give it a miss. Apparently we didn't miss much.
