The project is appreciable, the people who are doing this project to conserve the wild life is really remarkable. They are conserving gibbons and other wild life animals so that their existence is saved

Like most tourist things there is a fee to enter the park and the tourist fee is double the local fee. The gibbons are being kept in their real environment which is probably a good thing. So visit and feel good supporting a good cause.

This isn't really an "attraction" but rather an organization with a site in a very nice mountain/jungle park, where they try and rehabilitate Gibbons and prepare to release them into the wild. They have a few that can't be released that are now permanent residents...More

You get to see only a couple adorable gibbons as these ones cannot be sent back into the wild. Their stories are on the cage. Worthy cause!!!
