Area has a height of 39.5 meters (131 feet). You can even climb up the outer part of the tree and experience it that way. When you reach the top there is a secure platform around the tree that has a gorgeous 360 degree panoramic view of the forest canopy.
The first way you can climb the Ficus tree is to climb up through the inside, as it’s hollow. You will be wearing an secure harness and have a safety line where you can climb without any problem. Enjoy and experince climbing up inside the tree and being inside the body of the Ficus tree.
The second way you can climb is via iron rods on the outside of the tree, this is the most common method to climb. You will be using a secure and special scaling system to climb. There will also be a guide that will be assiting you throughout your entire climb and also when you finally reach the top of the trees platform.
The last way to climb is to use a full body harness and a special equipment to climb a rope vertically straight up, which also has an extra safety rope. You have to be in good physical condition to climb this method because it requires much effort. You can have a great experience as you will be completely in the air and in the woods taking in all the great wildlife around. According to experts, the best experience adventure and adrenaline is to be suspended on a rope in the air.
After enjoying some time looking at the beautiful view on the top of the trees platform, there are two ways to descend; the first is to climb down the same why you climbed up via the inside of the hallow Ficus tree with a safety harness. The second way is to descend from the top of the platform and rappel off the tree in the air, which is the most common way. There are 3 different points you can rappel from here.
