The hills around the city are ideal for an all-terrain vehicle(ATV). An ATV will give you the chance to get off the beaten track and explore the beautiful countryside around. You really shouldn’t miss! Ride as a passenger or dare to drive yourself – either way it will be an experience you won’t leave behind… Don’t have to worry much if you never drive it before. If you could ride a motorcycle, that would not be too hard for you to drive this one.
Only 20 min. drive from Sukantara Cascade Resort, there is one the most popular elephant training center. It is the one that you shouldn’t miss. A lot of fun for yourself and your companion, especially for kids.
