This is a half day trip to the most beautiful forested land remaining on North Sulawesi. Here you can see the Crested Black Macaques monkey (Macaca nigra), small ancient primates Tarsier (Tarsius spectrum), Bear Cuscus, Hornbills and many other birds.

Since most of the animals are active in the morning, with activity reducing by midday, it is recommended to go there early. Usually our guests leave the resort at 5.30am in the morning (by boat – then by car), to arrive in Tangkoko before 7am. Our driver will wait for you while you’re doing the 3-hour hike in the jungle. You will be back at the resort for lunch.

Price (minimum 2 people): IDR 695.000/person. 
Single person: IDR 1.035.000
Includes: boat transfer, car + driver, drinking water, soft drinks and fruits, packed breakfast.

What to wear/bring: Torch, long sleeves, long pants, proper trekking shoes (or at least sneakers),  mosquito repellent (use before entering the forest), extra T-shirt.
