Treck to Moolang waterfall

This trek is our main excursion and last four days. It brings you through the rainforest to an incredible set of waterfalls lost in the mountains. The departure point is only at 8 kms from our cottages. It takes two days to get up there. The third day is spent exploring the different waterfalls and you get back to the cottages on the fourth day. It is of course possible to make the trip longer and to explore more further the forest. You will walk along and through the river as well as inside the forest, sleep under the tent. There is no major difficulty, no climbing, but some parts are slippery and request carefull attention.
We provide an english speaking guide, porters, sleeping bags, tents, cooking utilities and food.
