Lush rainforests, and the reclusive wildlife are the interesting facets of the arduous trek. The area has a generally impressive terrain ranging from gently rolling to hilly and mountainous landforms. Cascading streams and cold springs abound flowing along ridges and down into a major river that meanders through nearly half the length of the trek area. A competent and reliable guide is necessary for this trek. Basic equipment needed are camping tents, compass, rope, lanterns and provisions for food and water.
