Here is my advice, if possible rent a scooter and ride to this area. The trip is more fun than the destination. You can zipline and do the river cruise and chocolate hills all in the same area. Enjoyable day.

First time for me to see an amazing creature, Tarsier. I learned that Tarsier doesn't like noise. According to our guide, Tarsiers kill themselves by holding up their breath and banging their head on the branches of trees. They are primate and extinct.
