Bako National Park, Kuching

4.5
#1 of 9 in Nature in Kuching
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.

  • Great Park but be aware the path is abit hard for those seldom exercises. Come early so will have more time to enjoy the nature.
  • The trails are pretty interesting as some of them are full with wildlife. But management is not the best. There's no refill water as the 20L bottle is “too heavy” to take it to the park so I was forced to buy plastic bottles whenever I wanted water.
