This scenic and fairly easy trail passes through well established secondary forest into selectively logged primary humid evergreen forest and a beautiful waterfall. After the waterfall the trail becomes very difficult and if you want to explore this stretch we strongly advise walking with one of our guides or rangers.
We recommend a whole day birding this trail with a suggested start of 06:30, and taking a packed lunch to eat at the waterfall. Beware the rocks around the waterfall are extremely slippery – please take care.
Transport to and from the trail (free to lodge guests) is via air-conditioned minibus or pickup and takes 30 mins each way (longer with birding stops for farmland birds). At the trailhead there are hummingbird feeders that attract a variety of hummingbirds including Saw-billed Hermit.
