This trail is now officially closed. The stream is now very difficult to cross and all ropes are removed. There are big red signs barring entry to the forest reserve and significant amounts of razor wire.

Trail 1 was all that the many contributors have already written about. Epic fun climbing over and under trees, getting stuck in ankle deep mud, conquering steep sections with ropes to finally make it to the top of the hill. Finding the path was really...More

We hiked/climbed this trail after a period of persistent rain, so the ground as well as the ropes you need at the particularly steep parts were very muddy and slippery. Even if it were completely dry (which I'm not sure it ever is) it would...More

Even getting onto this trail is a challenge, due to subsidence of the path, you have to negotiate a stream, and climb up onto the path. This is a very beautiful climb up the mountain. It's only 3 km but it took us 3 hours....More

I did this walk when I was 10, The colours, smells, sounds, feelings of the jungle have to be experienced before you die. The colours on the numerous butterflies are truly incredible, and the whooping of the apes among the trees is spiritual, the jungle...More

My friends and I are planning to camp a night at mount irau peak. Any tips/recommendations? Is it safe during rainy seasons such as case of landslides or lightning strikes? As I see the peak is just an empty open ground.

No. You just take a taxi to the start of the hike. It is off the main road. From there it's fairly well sign posted. No one worries about grids on these hikes.
