Mantanani island, that this thin island has never been commercialized, secures its hidden secrets from great number of divers and thus giving you a private but full enjoyment to the tropical island. One of the main reasons that Mantanani Islands is popular for local and tourists alike is because of its picturesque scenery, cool breezes and serene environment.
For those who love to watch these unique primate not found elsewhere in the world is a “Must See”.
It would definitely gives you one of the most exhilarating and memorable experience observing the Proboscis monkeys both young and adult leaping from tree to tree and eventually down to feed on young leaves and plants. The leaping act is superb, fast, steady, stylish and perfect. Proboscis monkeys survive mainly on a diet of leaves, seeds, and unripe fruits but will occasionally consume insects as well. (the proboscis monkey is rarely to be seen now, so no more river cruise for proboscis monkey). As well experiencing a night cruise with glows of fireflies lighting up the trees.
