*note: This is an illegal trip. We didn't managed to secure the required permit, in time, for this trip. If y'all do attempt to do this, without proper authorization, do it at your own risk.*
Failed attempt, no matter how hard we pushed through. This particular trail, hasn't been used, since 2018. So y'all can imagine how nature claims back and with such rage! You're basically met with literal walls and walls of rattans, bamboos, ferns and whatever-else combos. Whenever you see a small opening to worm your way through and cut, you'll be met with another damn wall!
Y'all see that we've also constructed a "Postman's Bridge". This bridge, will help you cross over, without even touching the water. Nature being what it is, hopefully the rope bridge, survives, for a while.
To the next group who will attempt this, all the best. Also, would suggest that y'all don't go in small groups. Go in big, work your way through those walls, in shift.
What I meant by this, is, if there's 10 of y'all, assign 5 for cutting/hacking/push through, and the remaining, to clear those debris. Once the first 5 gets tired, switch to the remaining 5, so the first 5 gets to rest a bit, while taking over clearing the debris. So on, and so on. This is so that y'all can get through, without completely draining everyone, and everyone gets proper breaks, from hacking those damn walls.
All the best!

Planned to cross from here, but we found a better alternate
This is a better alternate for us to cross, and the length of ropes that we had, suits the width of this particular section (about 16-17 meters +/-).
We proceeded in constructing the "Postman Bridge". This rope bridge will enable us to cross the river, without even touching the water.
If y'all still find this rope bridge in your trip, and you don't think you can cross safely with it (since its not as taut as we would liked it to be), would suggest for y'all to cut a length of bamboo, place it under the rope bridge. That bamboo pole will serves as a stabilizer.
Slightly unearthed, underground drainage. How and why, in the middle of the damn thick forest? 🤷🏿♂️🤷🏿♂️🤷🏿♂️
