Kojor - Sisangan forest is a marvelous place. I visit it with my friends. It was an amazing trip to this forest. We visit there in the month of August. The weather was very pleasant. The only thing that I don’t like it was mosquitoes. Well over all we enjoyed our trip.

Vanessa! You are right I have visited Sisangan forest last year during my summer vacations with my friends. It covers a 645 land area. I had a great experience by enjoying the horse riding. I hired the horse and visited whole park through this. A wide range of forests are enhanced its beauty.
