Full Day Bako National Park: Discover the natural wonderland of the Bako National Park in Sarawak. Explore the dramatic coastline of steep cliffs and rocky headlands broken by stretches of white, sandy beaches. Admire the Wave the many the rocky headlands with their fantastically shaped arches and stacks. The park is home to seven distinct rainforest ecosystems, giving it a remarkable diversity of animal and plant life.
Located at the tip of a small peninsula jutting out into the South China Sea, the park is one hour away from Kuching by car and longboat. It is famed for its stunning natural scenery and rugged landscapes but perhaps what makes it such as special place are the endearing colonies of endangered proboscis monkeys, silvery lutungs (leaf monkeys) and long-tailed macaques. There are also herds of wild boar, and colonies of flying squirrels and monitor lizards as well as hundreds of bird species.
The habitat is also home to fascinating plant life such as mangroves, strangling figs, carnivorous pitcher plants and symbiotic ant plants. There are also a series of colour-coded rainforest trails leading to rocky hilltops covered by lush jungle vegetation, rivers and cliffs. Some can be trekked in half an hour, others last more than seven hours. You can also visit picturesque secluded beaches as well as streams and waterfalls.
