It is one of the smallest national parks in Sarawak, yet one of the most interesting, as it contains almost every type of vegetation found in Borneo. The Park is relatively easy to explore with a well-maintained network of nature trails - from easy forest strolls to full-day jungle treks.
It is also the place see wild life such as the proboscis monkey (the one with funny nose) and the Bornean bearded pig, Bako???s largest mammal, which can come really near to the accommodations at the Headquarter.
From Kuching, take a taxi or Petra Jaya Bus No. 6 to Kampung Bako (Bako Village). From there it’s a 30min interesting boat ride to the headquarter.
Park accommodation consists of 3-bedroom Chalets, 2-bedroom Lodges, 4-bedroom Hostels and a camping ground.
