Wild Bearded Pigs at Bako National Park

Wild Bearded Pigs of Bako National Park

 

Like so many places in Borneo, there is only one way in and one way out of Bako National Park in Sarawak and that’s by boat. With this week’s Travel Photo Junket, I wanted to share with you my adventure into this remote national park abundant in wildlife such as the proboscis monkey, bearded pigs and hornbills as well as remarkable flora such as the meat eating Pitcher Plant. I spent my time here with six other travellers hiking through pristine jungles, swimming under waterfalls and learning about the fragile and balanced ecosystems of Borneo. Bako National Park is best accessed from Kuching via a short bus ride and a slow boat up river passing tiny fishing villages. On a side note, our boat trip broke down just off shore where we had to wade our way through the water to the park’s entrance – I never knew Borneo had crocodiles till after my trip…whoops. There is basic but clean accommodation on site, just watch out for the monkeys who are skilled in a bit thievery as well as breaking and entering.
