We've had noticed by native people that no road accessible to that riverbank, only boat can do.

We decide to go to harbor and hire any small boat for two persons.

It's fruits. That 's unripe.

When ripe, It will slip off the seed, then river carry to the far land, till deposit and sprout.

Possible that river cary them to nearly coastal that plenty of salt dilution.

Good luck that Nypa is salt tolerant palm, not mean it need salt,

cause I often found Nypa around river more than around coastal area.
