Trip itself was ok but I really expected a bit more. I tought there will be time for self guided trekking. There are some interesting trains nearby but to explore it I have to book 2 days at minimum. Food was tasty and as I asked for vegetarian food they cooked for me separatly. Thanks a lot for this.
This tour was amazing!
Great way to spend the day. The walk thru the forest and views from the top of the canopy walk are breathtaking.
