  • Do not feed wild animals.
  • No hunting or fishing.
  • No smoking while walking.
  • Bonfires / recreational fires are only permitted in designated areas.

  • Do not enter areas outside the boardwalks and footpaths. As the flora inhabiting the wetlands are fragile, visitors are advised to take account not to trample around and touch the flora.

  • Be sure to have a map handy when walking the hiking routes and turn back if you get lost. Also, be sure to choose a mountain that matches your physical strength and skills.
