Rubber trees are abundant and the villagers still earn a small income from rubber tapping. At the end of the trail walk, you will arrive at a scenic waterfall. Here you may enjoy a dip in the refreshingly cold spring waters. Back at the village, test your skills and accuracy as you compete with sling shots and blow pipes.
