Each of the suspension bridges ends in a wooden viewing deck built around a tree, enabling visitors to get a bird's eye view of the park as well as get closer to monkeys and birds in the tree tops.What to do there?
Take the exhilarating walk, with the possibility of seeing some animals from above such as elephants. It is run and owned by a private company and thus an extra fee is required.
