A must see when on Vanua Levu. The sights and the surroundings are amazing. If on a hot day going here will help you cool slightly.

Well, worth the vist. This area really gives you the experience of being in a tropical rainforest. Be sure to put menthol or eucalyptus oil mixed with coconut oil to ward off hummingbird sized mosquitos! Don't bother with commercial stuff such as OFF. Bring lots...More
