I went to this beautiful park in September 2018. The guide was very very nice and knowledgeable about the rainforest. There was a short climb which was great exercise! I couldn't believe that walked the canopies. It was so beautiful and amazing.

I very much enjoyed the hour long guided tour in the park, including the adrenaline inducing walk on the wobbly canopy. It is very exciting and beautiful. I suggest to wear walking shoes or trainers as flip flops or flimsy sandals might be a bit...More
