In the village of Matura we park our vehicles just after the bridge close to the Matura River and from there we will be transported further up the dirt terrain where it is only 4 wheeler vehicles can make that drive.
The start of the hike is all along natural and untouched forest where the overall terrain is undulating and clear all the way for the next 30 minutes to an hour when right before our very own eyes......."Mystique Pool" is in front of us. At this very point, we would cover just about 1 mile and the altitude here is about 465 feet.
Fantastic swimming and relaxation among natural rain forest for the balance of the day.
