Excellent walking through the forest was a pleasure, but we really needed walking boots rather than trainers. The steepness of some of the paths prevented us from going further - we're in our 70's - , but what we did we enjoyed. If going, take a packed lunch and a drink so that you can take your time and enjoy the forest.

We went hiking with a guide. Great Route, the guide told us all about the history of the area; and all the birds and foliage. We saw tonnes of birds, and a giant colony of bats flying around the gorge. Some great views, a pretty tough hike (steep) in places, but mostly a gentle mooch.

We had a lovely 4 hour hike up a hill with some beautiful views. It was very peaceful, we came across 3 seperate school parties but other than that only saw 5 other people in the whole 4 hours. We had intended to get a guide but our hotel and taxi driver told us not to bother so we made do with the map. Interestingly the map you can buy (very cheaply) does not match up with the maps on display in the park, not sure which, if either, of them is correct, and there are very few signs so we had no idea where we were and never did see that waterfall we set out for!
Unbelievably entry to the park is entirely free even though it is well maintained and there are toilets etc, which is great, but I can't help feeling charging tourists a small charge and putting up some signs would be a good idea!
There are loos at the start but nowhere to buy anything so make sure you take plenty of water.
