Iao Needle in the ancient Iao Valley Tucked deep into the cool rainforest, this is a nature lover’s paradise. Bring good shoes and hike in to the needle (photo to left). Go early and beat the bus tours. Steep mountains, fresh water streams, and waterfalls. Iao Valley is a peaceful lush area with easy hikes, exotic tropical plants, and clear, natural pools. Bring bug spray and a light jacket since it does rain in a rain forest and there might be bugs. Imagine that.
