Currently the eastern end of the Imbak canyon is open for visitors and has accomodation and a tourist infrastructure. The Imbak canyon studies centre is located at the entrance to the Imbak canyon and has been completed in November 2016. It is a huge complex, consisting of several buildings spread over an area of 200m x 300m, with accomodation capable of housing 600 visitors (comfortable units with air conditioning and private bathroom, as well as a hostel; electricity available from 7am to 11pm).
In August 2017 there were about 50 employees working there and the centre was receiving about 80 visitors per month, mostly researchers, but this number was expected to rise substantially. The primary purpose of the Imbak canyon studies centre is scientific research, but the centre also welcomes tourists.
The facilities include a library, a theatre, the office building with the reception, living quarters for researchers and tourists, a hostel, a large kitchen building, VIP houses, staff quarters, a laboratory, six research stations and an environmental education complex.
