We visited the Tree house on a local bus trip. The venue was well appointed and spacious. There were a number of swings which appeared to swing out beyond the ground. Challenging. There was also a flying fox to try. A pleasant interlude.

So awesome and so much fun! Entry is one dollar. Go early and get the pictures but just have fun swinging responsibly. Don’t be afraid. A 5 year old could do it. See pics.

Sceptic to get up in the morning as it as cloudy in the village, our guide Lou still told us to get up. As time was short, we decided to get there and were not disappointed, the sky cleared up. The place is remote and...More
