Climb the 100 steps to the viewing platform at the top of the building to get sweeping views of the trees and hills of the impressive natural surroundings.

  • The view is amazing once you reach the top. You do not have to race up the stairs. You have the opportunity to view out of the tower every two or three levels.  more »
  • A tour to the rain forest will drop you off here for some pictures. Its easy to get to the top, nice to have a view of the rain forest from top. Nothing special around the area. Good to experience it ...  more »
