Adventure across the changing terrain of Bako National Park to discover a huge diversity of plant and animal life. Take one of the 16 well-marked walking trails through rainforest, over rocky headlands, through carved sea arches, and along stretches of white, sandy beach. Perhaps the most famous inhabitants remain the 150 endangered proboscis monkeys that make their home here, although the long-tailed macaque, Bornean bearded pig, and monitor lizards may well disagree with that. Plan to see Bako National Park and other attractions that appeal to you using our Kuching travel planning app.
