Nice jungle tracking for solo or group. However if intend to go up the hill with jeep, need to be at the booking centre before 8.30 am. The quota perday is only 200 pax going up the hill. No advance booking allow.

excellent hiking serene atmosphere, ample space for a big crowd. But place has a lot of rubbish. We were there before the Eid holidays. The crowd should have better civic sense. Use the bins provided.
