Driving Directions


Natural Mystic Sanctuary is accessed by crossing through a shallow river and going up a rough stone road 800m to the top of the hill. It is a lovely walk up through the tea plantations and takes about 15 mins to walk up. Only 4x4 vehicles and motorbikes can come up the road. Most people can walk up with their bags, if you are coming on a tour with a driver for a short stay then you can prepare a day pack to bring and leave your main luggage with your driver. The road is not suitable for suitcases/trolleys. With advance notice we can help to bring your luggage up or arrange to bring people up. Please let us know when booking if you need help. Please try to arrive during daylight (before 6:00 p.m.) as it is easier to find us before dark.
