  • Enjoyed a loop through the park on a narrow highway. High canopy and deep forest each side of the road. A unique experience, for sure.

  • One of the most beautiful places I’ve ever been, and I’ve been all over. Short hike into a beautiful river with all sorts of places to relax in the water, or if you’re braver to jump in. If you go up river just a little there’s even a natural slide down to a short drop. So amazing.
  • Go swimming in “the valley” river!!!! It was so much fun we wanted to go back every day of our vacation. Such a beautiful experience and the walk to get to it isn’t bad. If you can- look up Rupert’s Forest Tours and go with him. Such a great guy and tour guide. Made our experience amazing and was such a good priced tour.
