TOP FIVE FORESTS TO VISIT ONCE IN YOUR LIFETIME
Aling-Aling Waterfall - Bali - Indonesia
If you have never been to Bali in Indonesia, then you need to make sure you visit the Aling-Aling waterfall. It is very popular with many visitors who want to slide down the natural waterslide and enjoying swimming in the pool as well as jumping from various heights. It is surrounded by some amazing forest that you can explore, great for those who love to hike. Aling-Aling Waterfall can be hard to find but if you want to find it, head to the village of Sambangan which is about six miles from Singaraja you will find a local tour guide who can take to the waterfall.
Bambo Forest - Kyoto, Japan
This has to be one of the most breathtaking places that you have to experience first hand. Located in Kyoto Japan, this forest is made entirely from Bamboo, it makes you feel like you are on another planet. The best way to access the forest is from the main street of Arashiyama, just north of the entrance of Tenryi-ju Temple. There is only one path to the forest but once to reach the entrance words can not describe how jaw-dropping it is.
Chocolate Hills - Bohol Island, Philippines
There are more than 1,268 cone-shaped hills spread across 50 kilometres of land. The hills vary in height from 30 meters to 120 meters. It is not clear on how the geological formation came about, but I know that is one destination that is definitely worth visiting. Each hill is covered in grass and during the dry season when the grass withers and turns brown, they look like giant chocolate kisses, hence the name. Surrounding the hills you have stunning, rich overgrown forests that enhance the natural beauty. It has at times been considered as the “Eighth Wonder of the World” and the countries third National Geological Monument by the National Committee of Geological Sciences.
Salt Creek Falls - Oregon, USA
This is another stunning waterfall that is worth a visit. A great location for both hiking and exploring for those you who are craving adventure. The falls main drop is 286 feet (87m) with the pool at the bottom is 66ft (20m) deep. Formed by receding glaciers from the last ice age, which formed lakes upstream which curve through the valley. The forest is rich and stunning no matter the weather, and it is rather easy to find and with 3.4-mile hiking route that loops and a longer 6-mile route that semi-loops.
