Itinerary description

You want to hike in a tropical forest on small isolated paths undulating through tropical forest? This is it. Huge trees, monkeys, waterfall, river and dense forest. Pay 22 dollar as foreigner (citizens pay much less) via e-citizen (credit card machine was not working when we we arrived) and start a trek that is both easy and adventurous at the same time. Almost the total route goes along small beautiful paths. Along the way we met three fallen trees that have to be scaled. The paths are easy and doable for everyone who likes to make km. There are many shortcuts if you want (use maps.me for that). It was 33 Celsius but the shade of the trees made it much cooler. When you get to the river, that is a perfect picnic spot (I walked off to the right, but there is nothing there and returned). From there it is only 50m overgrown after which the path continues. Also walked just a bit too far close to the end of the track (2km before?) and returned through the woods on a small path which was nice. If that path is overgrown later in, just return and take the bigger road 100 meters before).
