This camp is accessed via a 1 hr hike over fairly flat terrain. This hike includes several river crossings, so walking sandals (e.g. TEVA) are a necessity. The North Buton Forest Camp is set up with camp beds and mosquito nets inside large communal tents. There is a communal eating area and a forest lecture theatre. The camp has a basic field toilet and shower system, or bathing can also be done in the nearby river (recommended!). A steep climb to the primary forest transects requires a high level of fitness at this camp. As for all forest camps on Buton, conditions can get very muddy following heavy rainfall! Relaxing and socialising in the river that runs beside the camp is a great way to recover after a long, hard day of forest surveys.
