The Loher stone fort is well worth a visit. It is a little off the beaten track however. We were very impressed with its presentation.

A bit off the tourist path but well worth it. Nobody was there when we went. Beautiful scenary surrounds the fort. Pictures came out beautifully. Getting there through narrow road was fun as well.
