The concept of this tour is “portable outdoor café” that you can enjoy sweets and coffee treats in a swinging hammock in the forest of the lava plateau. At the hammock site, you will make your own spoon by sanding a spoon-shaped wood piece. You can use the spoon for the sweets during the tour, too. This is an easy hiking tour of 2 km (1.2 miles) which includes a visit to one waterfall, and a walk in the forest filled with carpets of leaves. If you wish, you can extend your hiking for 4 km (2.4 miles) to visit 2 more waterfalls. Why don’t you come out and take a break in the forest?
