This is a 40 minute hike with definitely uneven paths. Wear shoes with treads, or be confident in your normal footing. It is a mix of uphill and downhill as you're making your way in. You'll absolutely need a guide, because the entrance is hidden...More

We had a lovely walk in the humid, lush rainforest. The trail is well prepared but you need good shoes because it can get slippery. The ranger provided very good information on the animals we might encounter but the wildlife did not cooperate this time....More

We were made very welcome by the attendant who explained a little about the Rainforest and then we set off. It is a strenuous hike but it gives you great insight in to the local endemic plants. It is just off the main road between...More

A must see when on Vanua Levu. The sights and the surroundings are amazing. If on a hot day going here will help you cool slightly.
