It is hard to believe that Bako is one of the smallest national parks in Sarawak. With its rainforest housing interesting plant life and abundant wildlife, an extensive network of trekking trails leading to jungle streams and waterfalls, secluded beaches with a panoramic rocky shoreline… if Mother Nature were to seat herself on the coastline of Borneo, Bako would probably be her womb.
