The peak trail was amazing. The sign said it is mostly easy, but there's a lot of climbing involved. We liked that, but we saw a lot of other hikers returning while not making it to the peak. It is steep sometimes and we saw...More

What a great day and beautiful nature. The rain made it all looking even more natural. Zachir was a great guider and gave us all information about surroundings. Good to meet his friend too. Thank you very much. Can only recommend to all

Must see, such beautiful nature. Also well done to have it so well preserved and protected. There is a small waterfall there, but the green mountains are really most impressive. The monkeys there are so fun to watch, very peaceful and used to humans.

We hired a car to see the island and this was one of the places we visited. If you go on your own there is not much in signs to help you, think this is more geared up for tours. When you get to the...More

There are multiple walks you can do with multiple difficulties. Very impressive view. We even managed to see a bat mid day. There are hundreds of small frogs (possibly toads couldn't get close enough to tell) and lots of stunning butterflies. I would be incredibly...More
