Visited for two days. Refreshing environment. Lush, green forest, plenty of wildlife. There are a number of circuits you can trek. Overnighted on the park grounds in the base camp in a building that looked like it's haunted. Bring your sleeping bag if you plan...More

Our tour group arrived at the park headquarters in a fleet of 4WDs. I gather the park gets several thousand visitors a year, but with 20 vehicles this was probably one of the larger groups they had seen. While it was dry (just) at the...More

We are not far from the paradise... That enormous park will make everybody happy from the children's to the parents. But if I could give you an advice:you really have to take a guide because a lot of secrets are hidden in that magic forest,...More
