We did the 14km ( 9 mile ) hike in the back, first thing. It costs 15rm extra for foreigner to get permit, but no one checked. It ends at a little place in the mangroves that has water for sale when we went. After the hike, we explored the rest of the park and saw urangutan, they were wild. We saw tons of other small animals so keep your eyes open. Highly recommend, entire park is awesome.

Arrived here first thing when it opened at 8am and it was quiet and peaceful and I had the whole forest to myself. The canopy walk is amazing and a great place to watch the birds and listen to the sounds of the jungle. Strolling back on the ground was equally nice and total different experience. I highly recommend just talking a walk on the property and enjoy!
