Hear From Others

We took the stairs to the Hut and we showed our tickets before proceeding to the canopy walk. The healthy trees supported the canopy. One should keep the distance of 3 meters between individuals while walking on the tree tops. The trees are strong enough to support the ropes and ladders. The panoramic view of the forest was soothing.

Riz Baldivia

This is great place for city folks to get away from the hustle and bustle of city centre especially during weekend, there was small pond for our children to play around and also a waterfall to chill you out.
