DO A LITTLE

DO A LITTLE

Gibbon Retreat is an area of outstanding natural beauty with plenty to explore
both in and around our home. Follow the tree-friendly canopy bridge to uncover
a leaf-shrouded oasis, complete with cooling rock pool for 'forest-bathing'.

DO A LOT

The best way to reconnect with nature is to follow one of our four hiking
routes. Enjoy fresh air and beautiful views while surrounded by
centuries’ old trees. Look out for waterfalls, spot birds and butterflies,
listen to the sounds of forest life and observe the ecosystem in action.

Forest Bathing
Indulge in the latest popular natural therapy that gets you back in touch with yourself and mother earth. It is believed to lower blood pressure and boost the immune system. Our rock pool is replenished by the river water, naturally filtered, but also shared by a few aquatic creatures.
REMINDER:
Dogs are not permitted to swim in the rock pool.
Campfire star-gazing
Our natural planetarium is a clearing in the tree canopy that allows you to lie back and count the constellations. It’s a communal area where groups can share fireside stories, put the world to rights with good friends, or ponder the meaning of life.
REMINDER:
Please make sure all fires are fully extinguished before you return to your chalets.
Creature-calling
The abundance and diversity of rainforest animals means that Gibbon Retreat boasts its very own symphony orchestra. Listen for the rhythmic
clicking of cicadas, the melodious chirping of the Murai bird, and the hooting of the primates. Or treat yourself to front row seats for the Dawn
Chorus – you won’t know whether to use your camera or your voice recorder first.
