Established in 1954, the coastal Bako National Park is located at the mouth of the Bako and Kuching Rivers, just a short journey by road and boat from the capital Kuching. Despite being one of the province’s smallest national parks, Bako is one of the most popular because of its accessibility, diverse wildlife including the famous Proboscis Monkey, secluded beaches and excellent trekking trails.

The park is also well-known for its abundance of plant species, and it is thought to be a habitat for most types of vegetation found in Borneo. A well maintained network of 16 graded walking trails, from gentle forest strolls to full day jungle treks, allows visitors to explore with ease the variety of natural beauty in a concentrated area.
