In short: • real jungle walk: snakes spotted • 2 hours up and down for reasonably fit people • 20,000 entry • no guide needed in the slightest - follow the rope!

I just noticed that my favourite excursion in Bintan has not been listed yet on Trip Advisor... even though this must be by far the island's oldest attraction: welcome to Gunung Bintan, or Mount Bintan! Whilst this 330 meters high summit would hardly be noticed...More
