Counting about a thousand species of herbal plants, bamboos and many species of trees, the primary forest is as pretty as a postcard with its cascading streams, waterfalls and pools. It also shelters abundant wildlife, and patient observers may be rewarded by an encounter with a pangolin or a specimen of the 16 species of reptiles or 36 species of amphibians known to live in the area, to name but a few inhabitants.
