Bako National Park, Sarawak

Bako is a village, which is situated at about one and a half hour north of the state capital city, Kuching. After reaching this fishing village, visitors have to go into the park office building, where tickets and boat arrangement can be secured. The main site of visit is the trail, which can last 5 hours or more, depending how much to be covered and how fast the going is. The trails are claimed to be presented as natural and offer sighting of birds, monkeys, wild pigs, forest plants and mushrooms. There is a waterfall some two and a half hours up the trails.

A second site is a boat away further up. Here the main attraction is the rock that lines the coastline and one or two rock structures that have withstand the beatings of waves may be for many thousand years. The nature of the rocks can give indication that they might have been underwater some million years ago.
