Basically you will be given a guided tour of the area on the river with a boat called "klotok". You also can explore the jungle by trekking and again it is guided. You can sleep on the klotok boat or opt to sleep at the jungle lodging (for an additional cost).

The tour is designed to be an extraordinary experience in the wild with a safe overnight stay and the comfort of the guided klotok boat; that will be the mesmerizing part of the adventure (aside from the jungle attraction itself).
