  • Meru Betiri Park cannot apply for the Organization of the tour, only through intermediaries. We found positive reviews Sri, which organized a us trip. When we arrived, there was heavy rain. We asked. If we can get to this day. Sri said. that, of course, possible. When we came to the river crossing, the River came from the banks, and you cannot drive. Sri demanded additional money from us while we paid very much: for 2 cars, park entrance fees, contributions to release small turtles. We haven't seen a cashier machines were killed. For lunch she took us 700 000 IDR-they offered us an empty rice noodles and empty, the value of which does not exceed 50 000 and IDR. Drink was water. We think that she just took all of our money. In addition to the 500 USD spent for one day without eating and normal living conditions, of the tour program was only 1 item. We are disappointed at Sri. Beware of the mess with her!
