The forest likes a peaceful picture. Its special and different feature is that there is bong bong (bòng bong), a kind of pine tree, sticking crowdedly in the cajuput trunks, increasing the under covered area. There are melodic sounds of birds, sounds of the fishes turning in water and excited yells of visitors. The nature is fully energetic.
