Experience sunset from the top of the Twin Peaks opposite UKARIA concert hall, a site that has long been a gathering place for music and ceremony. Before your canapés and drinks are served, you will be led to the peak of the mountain, stopping on occasion to the sounds of musicians from A Brief History of Time. A perfect marriage of place and sound on Peramangk Country.
