This is a little visited and amazing place. The accommodation is basic, but seeing tarsiers and a troop of black macaques was an wonderful experience. The walking is quite stiff, as a lot of it is uphill on rough surfaces with no real path. We...More

A nice walk if cool enough, but nothing overly spectacular. Very, hot and sticky, as you would expect. You are obliged to hire a guide, but if we could have, we would have found the mackacks and tarcias pretty easily ourselves with a couple of...More

Even though we only did one afternoon evening hike in the national park, I was surprised how much wildlife we saw. Our guide was the mother of Lea, whomis also a local guide there. She must have been the best animal trakker I ever met....More

We loved the park and saw monkeys, Tarsiers, flying lizards, exotic birds and beautiful plants. It's worth your while to have a local guide. Bring bug spray and a poncho!

This is a great place for animal watching. You can only access with a guide (I recommend prearranging that via your hotel), and it is recommendable doing a tour both in the early evening and early morning because you will different animals. Amongst the animals...More

A great place to spend your time alone and have an adventure, if you're lucky, you may find Yaki and Tarsius in the wild. Expect the visit to last the whole day. You can't always find these stuff in the wild.

The walk itself won't be a problem. But there is no toilet inside the park
