Numerous sightings of the tarsier within and around the site confirm that it is most suitable for the stated purpose.

EXPERIENCE DAY TREKKING

Day trekking allows you to explore the tarsier inhabited forest with the added benefit of exercise and breathtaking views. During noon, it could be hot and humid, thus we encourage trekkers to bring water and even extra-shit. The ground when wet, as it always is especially if you trek before noon, is very slippery thus flipflops certainly will not work.

TARSIER TERRITORIALISM

INTERESTING FACTS ABOUT TARSIERS

A cuddly-looking creature with soft, grayish-fur; about 100 millimeters in height; with rat-like tail which is longer than the body and bat-like ears, the Tarsier (Locally called the maomag). It thrives mostly in secondary dense forests with a diet of crickets, beetles, termites and other insects as well as small animals like lizards, frogs, and even small birds but has almost no natural enemies in the wild. Furthermore, this nocturnal creature has the unique ability of being able to turn its head 180 degrees as well as to jump backward with precision. Yet ironically, is listed as one of the country’s threatened species.
