Trek route


Bako contains an incredible variety of plant species and vegetation types and this is one of the park’s great attractions. at Bako it is possible to see almost every type of vegetation found in Borneo. 25 distinct types of vegetation from seven complete eco-system, Beach vegetation, Cliff vegetation, Kerangas or heath Forest, Mangrove Forest, Mixed Dipterocarp Forest, Padang or Grasslands Vegetation and Peat Swamp Forest. It is wasy to explore these eco-system via the jungle trails. The contrasts are so distinct that you do not have to be scientist to notice the differences. Furthermore, most of the different vegetation types are found close to the Park Office at Telok Assam. Amongst the unique and strange plant life are the carnivorous plants (pitcher plants, sundews, bladderworts).

You reach Bako by going to the Bako Village Jetty – 1 Hour from Kuching – and hop on to a speed boat for thrilling ride of approx 30 Minutes.

Bako is home to the Rare Proboscis Monkeys


And also Wild boars and bearded pigs


Bako’s extensive trail system is made up of 16 colour-coded jungle trails which offer a range of walking and hiking options.


The fit and adventurous can opt for full-day jungle hikes or overnight camping expeditions, whilst those who prefer to take it easy can opt for a relaxing forest walk.


It can be a very sapping experience when you trek through these Equatorial Rainforests – the humidity was so high – I was drenched withing minutes of starting the trek.

The sign says that this is the ” Last Smoking Point” on the trail. So I take a break and take off my shirt and put it to dry – hopefully….
