While continuing your walk in the wet forest, you will join first, the area of the codias (landmark n° 22) then the area of the kaoris (landmark n° 21). You will then cross the beautiful "Houé" river at the level of the Bains de la Houé and return to the reception area by passing in front of the Pompidou Bridge, a vestige of the logging industry of the 1960s.
