A – Z Guide To Bako National Park

Covering the north tip of Muara Tebas area, Bako National Park contains a wide range of vegetation, in fact almost every type of vegetation found in Borneo can be seen here.



Despite its small size; it has been recognized as a national park since 1957 and it offers the perfect introduction to Sarawak’s flora and fauna. There is a high chance of seeing the rare proboscis monkey, a species that can only found in Borneo.

The journey to the park involves a 37-kilometre car ride from Kuching to Kampung Bako and from Kampung Bako a 20-minutes boat ride to the park.



We did a research online and we found a lot of questions regarding Bako National Park, hence we decided to put down much information we can with this A – Z Guide To Bako National Park.


Activities

There is a lot to do here actually, and one of it is hiking or go on a trail. There are 16 colour coded trails to choose from but as for now, there are only 2 trails available for a day trip.



Take a boat ride to the famous Sea Stack; and others rock formations that scattered throughout the park. It will be an additional charge to get there.


Visit the beach. There are a number of beaches within the Bako National Park, but not all are safe to swim.


Spot wildlife. The best time to spot the wildlife in the park is by doing the night walk, but you need to spend a night in the park (see accommodations).
