First time I visited this park. The standard of maintenance and peace attributed to the place are simply awesome. Another unique place for family picnic in reconciliation with nature. Thank you for keeping this place clean and accessible to all.

if you like to go for a walk in the nature, then the place is a must be but always check the weather when you go there cause when its rainning the place may be very tricky as there are always lots of water comming down the valley. On the other hand it is a nice place to visit.

Good national park, lots of walks. Views are lovely. Entrance at the top had a few market stalls mainly for tourists. Can barter toget a reasonable price. Monkeys are aggressive if humans go anywhere close. Even going to stand to take a picture of the view near to where the monkey was sitting, it wasn't happy. It's their territory, careful... More

On a previous visit we took a little stroll as we entered not too far from Casela wildlife park. There are various hiking trails and different approaches to Black River Gorges national park. This time we went through a different entrance which was more busier with tourists as you can see the valley from the top. Popular means better opportunities... More

The views from BRG were spectacular, it just went on for miles. It reminded my wife and I of our visit to the Blue Mountains in Australia. We loved seeing the wild macaque monkeys. Although people should really listen when the guide says they can get aggressive, watching some people try to get up to them then get chased off... More

Henri from Yanature took us on this hike. The quietest hike I went on which made it more special. Henri was very knowledgeable about the nature and we had education as well as exercise. Great morning.

I had been looking forward to taking a hike in this park during our holiday. I got the chance today. I didn't want a huge trek, just something to last for 3-4 hours. I drove to the park and found the car park fairly easily. Just be careful on the long driveway- it's not wide in some places and you... More

Go to the viewpoint to see breathtaking views and enjoy some quick shopping at the stalls set up on the path to the viewpoint.
