Things to Prepare if you are going to Bako National Park for an unforgettable adventure

 

With its rainforest, abundant wildlife, jungle streams, waterfalls, interesting plant life, secluded beaches, panoramic rocky shoreline, bizarre rock formations and extensive network of trekking trails, Bako National Park Sarawak offers visitors an excellent introduction to the rainforest and coastline of Borneo.

Bako may not have an instantly recognisable star attraction, but there can be very few places in the world that pack so much natural beauty into such a limited area, all just 37 km from Kuching. Its accessibility - and its sheer range of attractions and activities - have made Bako National Park Sarawak one of the most popular nature parks in Sarawak.

Bako National Park Sarawak contains an incredible variety of plant species and vegetation types, and this is one of the park’s great attractions it is also probably the best place in Sarawak for wildlife experiences. Visit www.SarawakBorneoTour.com and check out our full-day tour package to Bako National Park Sarawak to experience the nature and see the wildlife of Sarawak's tropical rainforests.
 
 
If you are going for the trip here are a few suggestions on what to pack for the eco-journey. It is recommended that visitors prepare their own checklist for apparel or equipment before embarking on their trek which may be useful or necessary, depending on their plans. In terms of clothing, it is ideal for a visitor to dress in short's and T-shirts when going on trails in the forest, but for extra protection against sunburn on the plateau and against insects in the evening it is highly recommended for visitors to bring along slacks and long-sleeve shirts.

Be prepared for muddy trails in the forest if after rain so it is best for visitors to wear training shoes or comfortable boots with good soles. Take note that it can get very hot on the plateau, so a hat, re-hydration salts and sun lotion may be needed on longer walks.

Water bottles are essential in making the trip, and necessity item on longer walks. To bring enough water for the entire trip may be a challenge for the long trek, therefore it is a good idea to bring water purifying tablets or a water filter since even in the dry season, there are nearly always some flowing freshwater streams encountered along the long trails.
 

A small torch is useful for overnight journeys and rucksack to carry your extra clothes. Bring along a packed lunch and some chocolate, raisins to maintain sugar levels.  Bottled water can be bought at the canteen at the Park Headquarters.

So be sure that you prepare your list of things to bring for the trip, so your Borneo eco-journey would be an enjoyable and hassle-free nature-loving excursion.
