A special place



Our region is still unspoiled by tourism. Only few travellers do venture this far because it still takes a bit of an effort to reach here. But those who do are rewarded manifold. Several tracks will lead you through the forest without the need of having a guide. Just follow the signs. Of course, we are not a zoo, and there is no guarantee that you will see these animals but you will have a nice walk anyway.

Trail of
the Tarsius

This trail is a good starter. It is not so steep and far but nonetheless offers nice views into the rain forest and onto the sea. Try watching at dawn and dusk for the Tarsius, the smallest monkey on earth, preferrably on old trees with holes. Duration: approx. 30 minutes.

Black Macaque

This trail leads you up through the jungle onto the first hill range. From here you will have some splendid panorama views to the sea and into the forest. You will see many places where wild boars where looking in the soil for worms. Duration: approx. 1,5 hours.

Trail of
the Hornbill

One follows a small river up to a cascade and hikes up a hill where the horn bills often can be met. This track requires a bit of climbing skills before the cascade, and walking in the river is slippery too. It is not recommended for children! Duration: approx. 4 hours.

A hike to
the Waterfall

Natural pools and small cascades beautify the walk to the waterfall, which is about 15m high. A river always creates a unique atmosphere, and especially if it is flowing through rain forest. This track too is not recommended for children. Duration: approx. 3 hours.

Visit the
Clove Plantations

Cloves were one of the treasures of the spice islands and many people were killed for it. Nowadays only the rain forest still dies for it. See how much effort it takes just to reach the plantations and enjoy stunning views on the way. Duration approx. 1,5 hours.
