That's what we were there to do and there didn't seem to be much else to do, at least in the part of the park we were in. The forest is lovely and very thick and because it is in the highlands, the temperature is pleasantly cool.

Perfect Track, Dissapointed Service
To have this experience you should spare your time one or 2 days. In case the weather not good. The location is quite far with a challanging road. It would take approximately 60min from Palu. This place is one of the best spots in south east asia. The track is quite long. You can see mountains, sea, river, city, villages, and forest in one single jump. Weather is stable and thermal is perfect. Too bad the service is not really good. Toilet is bad. There are only 3 tandem pilots. We were 7 person. It's mean they have to fly 3 times. When it comes for the 3rd times, the wind directions change, it was not safe to fly, so we stop the activity and they said we can come again by next day, they'll be there. Guess what, by the next day we come, they are not there! Not even one person! We try to call and their number not active. Dissapointing! We will not go there anymore. There are another great spot for paragliding to be visited in Indonesia dear!

Masjid Apung yang berdiri kokoh setelah di terjang tsunami
Pertama datang ke Palu, impian saya adalah melihat Masjid Apung. Setelah kejadian Gempa dan Tsunami, masjid ini tetap berdiri kokoh. Melihat lokasi sekitar masih terasa kesedihan.
