If you love the outdoors, it doesn't get better than this. You will watch the scenic rainforest pass below your feet and the Anamuya Mountain unravel before your eyes. This is one experience that you do not want to miss. It is the kind of adrenaline rush that every nature lover seeks. It offers the ultimate challenge on your ability to take on challenges. The ever ‘lurking’ danger of falling to the ground below makes the ride even more interesting…of course, the mysteries of the forest as told by the guides will help make the ride a little bit mysterious.
