It is a 3500 step trek that goes and down a couple of hills. Not easy but totally worth it. Don’t forget to visit two more bridges that are a slight detour from the first village along the way. Guides can be hired from Tyndah...More

Beautiful place, but its 250 steps down and up inside the forest. But a must place to visit.Among tree top houses and lush greenery it will take you deep inside mother nature.
