This trail is now officially closed. The stream is now very difficult to cross and all ropes are removed. There are big red signs barring entry to the forest reserve and significant amounts of razor wire.

We were determined to take this trail as many reviews said it's the best trail around here. The jungle hike had no views, nothing to see at all. Just hiking.. it was interesting and a bit challenging but just that - a jungle hike. We...More

This hike just wasn’t worth the effort for me. I think there are probably a lot better hikes around to spend time doing. It’s a difficult trail to follow, I recommend a GPS app to make sure you’re on track. The trail is officially closed...More

Officially, this trail (and the Mossy Forest) is closed until at least the 31st of January 2018. Though if you're adventurous, it's still a good way to spend a morning. The most difficult part was finding the actual trail, because the official entrance seems to...More

Its really closed. We tried the walkaround of the barrier as described in a comment below, but the problem is, that nature meanwhile took the path back. U can still see it but its in really bad shape. You have to be hardcore to do...More

We stayed in the camp ground. Very basic. The bathrooms are not for the faint hearted. The campground was reasonably clean as our fellow campers were clean and tidy people. We were told however that this is not always the case as some people completely...More
