lagnason's wild features

When you are physically in the area, you will know that you are something into different. It is not a familiar place, and so a feeling of irrational fear but a sense of awe at the same time - they tickle your senses and imagination.

Beginning at Sumbria Bridge, you will embark your adventure of the day with significant challenges. You should, that is if you are deciding to explore Lagnason River, realize that it is actually wild – huge boulders, very rough rocks, unpredictable depths of water, slippery river banks, among others.

You can observe various kinds of creatures are lurking around, trees everywhere, and all types of flora that are endemic in the locality. This place is a haven for nature-seekers and adventurers.

Follow your guide and listen to his/her advice as it can save you from a lot of troubles. For example, it is not only about safety but simple instructions such as not touching a particular plant or an insect because they can cause skin irritation that will make your whole day miserable.

flying foxes

Among the fascinating creatures living in the biodiversity hotspot, you can easily spot flying foxes. Exploring the colony of these mammals is considered the highlight of your Lagnason River trek. You will have a close encounter with these flying foxes where they live.

Lagnason is known to researchers and biologists alike as the nesting ground and not only a colony of flying foxes and bats. It has been identified that there are four major species of flying foxes and two of them are the world’s largest.

The four identified flying foxes are the Large Flying Fox, Golden-Crowned Flying Fox, Little Golden-Crowned Flying Fox, and the Island Flying Fox.

Please, note that when you take photos (pictures) of these creatures, you must not use a flash as they are susceptible to light and it can cause raucous, aside from disturbing their peace.
