What To Expect

Indulge in the quiet but majestic beauty of nature in this one day trip to Puerto Princesa's Balsahan River and Trail. Start your day off by trekking through the trail of Thumb Peak (don't forget to wear hiking shoes!) where you'll encounter butterflies flying about and listen to the melodious sound of birds chirping in the morning. Your guide will not only help you with the trekking aspect, they will also teach you some forest secrets! This includes how to lure birds like the Palawan Hornbill and the Flameback Woodpeckers and also help you how to identify the Palawan Rock Frog by the river side. The delicious picnic lunch at Balshan River Cottage will rejuvenate you for the rest of the trip - enjoy a meal made of grilled meat, fish, fruits and local vegetables! You'll also visit some of the local coffee plantations and check out how local coffee is grown and harvested, as well as explore the lowland forest by the trail. Don't worry about the day possibly getting too hot, because a dip in the river will cool you off right away. This trip is surely something any traveler shouldn't miss, especially those in love with nature.
