Day Excursion & Hiking at Kereita Caves & Waterfall

Route Description

Our walk through Kereita Forest starts at the Carbacid Forest Gate. we will visit a small natural spring in the neighbourhood to view water bubbling from underground. This is actual carbon dioxide gas from the ground.
The trail then goes deeper into the forest, with the undergrowth now getting thicker and more interesting and varied. Giant ferns and climbers abound deep in the forest, competing for the meager light filtering though old gnarled mammoth trees that stand tall and proud, untouched by human exploitation. The sounds of various species of monkeys and birds increasingly become a regular part of the jungle. The trail is hardly discernible due to infrequent visitors to this part of the forest.
After walking up and down two steep river valleys for about two hours, we will pass by Elephant Pool, a large natural water body that Elephants love to frolic in. A further one hour walk will finally bring us to Kereita Waterfall on Gatamaiyu River. To the right side of the waterfall is a cave with a small bat population.Kereita has been classified as an Important Bird Area (IBA), and boasts over 138 species, of which 20 are considered rare.
The whole round hike takes about 6-7 hours

Meeting point Bata next to Hilton hotel @ 6:30 Am and leave @ 6:45 Am
