To be honest, the road to the inn is not easy. First, you have to travel long-distance from the city center, and in the last few kilometers the road is super bumpy and narrow. Next, if you go in a rainy season, the road is so slippery as well as all the pot holes make it even harder to reach the place. But on the other hand, it’s worth a try, I can guarantee that you’ll be stunned and overwhelmed by the scenery here.

Forest ghost inn travel experience

Large buses from 35 seats will not be able to access the place. As for the 30-seater car , you can easily enter the inn. If your auto has a low-undercarriage, you should consider to rent other one because the pot holes will definitely destroy you car!

Although it is open year round, you should go during the rainy season or winter and stay here overnight. So why? The answer is very simple: flickering light, dim space, light drizzle, etc. all together create a true-blue, creepy-as-can-be forest ghost inn.
