    Soesokkak is an estuary formed by lava flows over thousands of years, offering unique geography, interesting natural formations, hiking and nature experiences.

This spot is a hidden gem of the local nature scene, famed for rock formations and thick, verdant pine forests.

    You can also take a ride on the famed Teu raft to explore every corner of the estuary as you pull yourself along on a rope to capture the unique views in an equally unique way. Soesokkak is 33 minutes east of the city centre by bus.
