Definitely worth a visit. Stunning views from the village and the tree is something else. Walked for half an hour through it, swung on its roots, climbed, hid, played. Kids loved it. Such a treat to see a natural wonder not trashed by man. Go...More

Stopped in to view the Banyan Tree - was incredible - the kids enjoyed climbing the tree. Was a pretty special visit. So glad it was not ruined by Cyclone Pam as it has obviously been growing for many, many years.

The guide swung like Tarzan from a loose aerial root and we each had a turn too. It took about 30 minutes to wander through all the roots of the tree and it was spectacular to experience.

The Banyan Tree is a little off of the main road but worth the trip in my opinion. It's 2000vt to get in and the man who owns the land will show you around the tree and tell you about it. It's quite large and...More
