Usually on the way you will be greeted by several pairs of hornbills and langurs, if you are lucky the bull in the plantation area will also welcome you. In the afternoon you will walk along a clean sandy beach with dead coral pulled over due to the fierce waves of the south sea. Sea eagles and lizards often appear here.

DAY 04: Permisan Bay – Sukamade (B,L,D)

The straight uphill path with a slope level enough to make your knees meet your chin when you walk will not be felt because the beauty of the natural lowland rain forest distracts you. On this path you will also enjoy the land that was once the seabed that was lifted by the earth's plates. After lunch, the journey continues by crossing flat and downhill terrain with lowland rainforest vegetation. Not infrequently the voice of the black panther is heard in this area.
The journey continues to the village with a descending path and bamboo forest vegetation and crossing several rivers, until arriving in Sukamade village in late afternoon, then walking to the Sukamade guest house for stay overnight.
