01. GREEN CANYON, HOME INDUSTRY AND PLANTS
To experience the home industry, we’ll visit the people and see what they do for the living. First, you’ll see the production of palm sugar (caramel) which requires a villager as the tapper, to climb a coconut tree more than forty times a day, just to get a small amount of coconut sap to produce the palm sugar. As we travel to through the villages, we’ll show you the various types of plants that there are so common in tropical countries.
Have you ever heard about Ramayana or Mahabarata story? We’ll go to Wayang Golek (wooden puppet) maker to see how to carve the wooden puppets, and see a demonstration on how they work.
After the home industries, we’ll take a tour in a comfortable boat along the river’s Green canyon. The water is crystal clear. We have a chance to swim under the shower of dripping water from the stalactites and tree roots above. We can also climb along the steeply sloping side of the river bank. We leave the Green canyon for lunch at Batukaras beach. As we have a meal, we can enjoy a good view in peaceful place. On the way back home, we’ll pass a long bamboo hanging bridge that we can walk on or see the turtle conservation.
