Be prepared to get lost in a sea of flowers and feel like you’re in a movie as its hills are lined with multiple flower fields. Some species include pink moss, tulips, poppies, lavender, salvia, and sunflowers – all looking picture perfect and worthy of being turned into a postcard. You’ll also see the Kuju Mountain Range in the backdrop on clear days.  However, be careful when posing for photos to avoid damaging the plants.
