We visited the park twice as part of a organized birding group. The park is huge, clean with well maintained trails. This is a great place to see the Raggiana Bird-of-Paradise at their display leks early in the mornings.

Frozen in time but well maintained, with good roads. The views are superb and not to be missed. The entry charge is minimal.

While a beautiful park that is rarely crowded, once should visit in large groups for safety. I was hiking in a group of three and some rascals with knives and a gun robbed us. Be careful!
